An incredibly easy and delicious recipe for lettuce wraps. Hoisin sauce gives these ground chicken lettuce wraps lots of flavor and the rice and water chestnuts add texture. Get a whole head of lettuce ready because you’re not going to want to stop eating these chicken lettuce wraps! 


  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds ground chicken
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce (you can find this in the Asian section of the grocery store)
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 (8 oz) can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  • For serving: butter lettuce leaves, diced green onions and sriracha


  1. Add the chicken, mushrooms, garlic powder, chicken broth, hoisin, soy sauce, rice and water chestnuts. Stir to break up the chicken.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until chicken and rice are cooked through.
  3. Remove the lid. Stir a bit. Prepare the lettuce leaves and green onions.
  4. Scoop a bit of the chicken mixture down the middle of a lettuce leaf. Sprinkle with green onion and, if you like a little kick, drizzle a tiny bit of sriracha on top of each lettuce wrap.
