These quick and easy authentic Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps are so delicious, made with sautéed ground chicken thighs, shiitake mushrooms and water chestnuts seasoned with Asian spices served in a crispy cold lettuce leaf with a spicy hoisin dipping sauce.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz skinless (boneless chicken thighs, ground)
  • 1/4 cup water chestnuts (chopped fine)
  • 1/4 cup dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • freshly ground white pepper (to taste)
  • 2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • 6 iceberg lettuce leaves (rinsed (careful not to break))
  • 2 tbsp diced scallions

For the Spicy Hoisin Dipping Sauces:

  • 4 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 tsp chili sauce (I used Sriracha)
  • 1 tbsp warm water

Instructions

  • Place mushrooms in hot water to soften a few minutes. Remove stems and chop fine.
  • Combine soy sauces, oyster sauce, 1/2 tsp sesame oil, rice wine, sugar, and pepper in a bowl.
  • Combine ground chicken (I put the chicken in the food processor), softened mushrooms and water chestnuts into a bowl. Pour over chicken; toss. Let marinate for 15 minutes.
  • Mix Spicy Hoisin Dipping Sauce ingredients in another bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat remaining sesame oil in a wok or skillet over high heat. Add garlic; cook until golden, about 10 seconds. Add chicken mixture; stir fry until browned, breaking the chicken up as it cooks, about 4-5 minutes.
  • To serve, spoon 1/4 cup of the chicken into each lettuce leaf. Garnish with scallions and a spoon a little Spicy Hoisin Dipping Sauce onto each one.
