P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps {Copycat Recipe}

I don’t go to P.F. Chang’s that often but when I do someone in my group or family will order their chicken lettuce wraps because they’re just so good.

Now you can skip the restaurant version and make your own in 20 minutes. And I promise you this homemade version tastes better. We inhaled these and then my daughter asked if I could make a double-batch the next day. So I did.

P.F. Chang's Chicken Lettuce Wraps {Copycat Recipe} - Skip the restaurant version and make at home in 20 minutes!! EASY, healthier because you're controlling the ingredients, and they TASTE WAY BETTER!!
They’re super easy and healthier because you’re controlling all the ingredients.

There are so many layers of flavor from the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, rice wine vinegar, garlic, ginger, and green onions. The chili garlic sauce adds a perfect amount of heat that we enjoyed but if you’re sensitive to spices you can always reduce the amount.

In case you’re concerned, I found all the ingredients in the Asian section of my regular grocery store. They all play their own role to add authenticity to the recipe and I recommend using them all.

I’ve made the recipe using both ground chicken and ground turkey and both were excellent. You can also use ground beef in case you want another option. Or try my P.F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef (Copycat Recipe).

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken (I’ve also used ground turkey with good results)
  • 1 medium/large sweet Vidalia or yellow onion, diced small
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Asian chili garlic sauce, or to taste (sriracha may be substituted)
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger or 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger, or to taste
  • one 8-ounce can water chestnut, drained and diced small
  • 2 to 3 green onions, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • butter lettuce leaves, for serving

Directions:

  1. To a large skillet, add the oils, chicken, and cook over medium-high heat until chicken is cooked through; stir intermittently to crumbly while cooking.
  2. Add the onion, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, chili garlic sauce, stir to combine, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until onion is soft and translucent and most of the liquid has been absorbed; stir intermittently.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger, stir to combine, and cook for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  4. Add the water chestnuts, green onions, salt and pepper to taste, and cook for about 2 minutes, or until tender. Taste filling and make any necessary flavor adjustments, i.e. more soy sauce, hoisin, pepper, etc.
  5. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture into the lettuce leaves to serve. Recipe is best warm and fresh but filling will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days.

  1. I made these for the first time tonight, I have ate these in other restaurants before but my wife has never really cared for them. She was a lil hesitant tonight but agreed to try them, she is already wanting these in our recipe box so we don’t accidentally lose the recipe! They were AMAZING!!!

  2. Made these for dinner tonight, I’ve had the recipe saved for awhile. My husband has been trying to watch his diet so I knew this would be something good for him. He loved it! I even convinced my picky 14 year old to try it as well but he’s got a much bigger appetite (he’s a swimmer) so I put it over some rice so it filled him up a bit more. This will be one of our favorite “go to” meals!😉

  6. I made the lettuce chicken wraps last night and they are delicious! Just as good, if not better, than P.F.Changs. I served them with a simple Chinese noodle dish. I can’t wait to have leftovers tonight?

  10. I made this for the third time tonight and it is one of my very favorite meals. I followed the recipe exactly except I also added two stalks of finely chopped celery with the chopped onion. I think it would also be good with diced carrots as a variation. I shared this link with my FB friends and suggested that they have all of the ingredients prepped in advance. Thanks for this delicious recipe!

  13. Thank you so much for this recipe! My husband and I became do addicted to Pf Chang’s chicken lettuce wraps to the point that we go there 2-3x a week just for their wraps! Now that I’ve tried youe recipe, we are so happy! I am 8 mos pregnant and was craving for these tonight. Unfortunately PF Changs is already closed so I headed to the nearest Fry’s to buy the ingredients you mentioned. I did not regret following every step in your recipe! Thank you sooooo much! It is so delicious!! Definitely a copycat recipe of PF Chang’s chicken lettuce wraps! Lol

  18. Do you have a recipe for the dipping sauce that normally goes along with the lettuce wraps?

    • I think it’s a hoisin-based sauce, but I haven’t been there in awhile and make these. Honestly the meat is so juicy and flavorful I don’t think you need a sauce. It’s so juicy you will have ‘runoff’ on your plate :)

  19. Very good, will make this again!

  20. Averie, I’ve made plenty of your recipes and these lettuce wraps are one of go to recipes now! I love the flavor in this quick & easy to put together recipe, I have used cubed chicken thighs and subbed cashews for the peanuts as well and it came out great!

  21. Absolutely delicious!!! Thank you!! Will definately be trying more of your recipes!!

  22. These are delicious! I am planning for an RV trip and wondering if the filling would freeze well. Have you ever frozen the chicken filling and warmed up later?

  23. I have made these several times. Always a hit with family and guests!
