Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Whenever we go to P.F. Changs, we get chicken wraps as an appetizer. I’ve seen copycat recipes floating around for awhile and it was finally time for me to get in the action. OMG….why did I wait so long? These are so easy to make and I had almost all the ingredients on hand.

They were a big hit with my daughter and I know we’ll be making them again, very soon! I used ground turkey since that’s what I had in my freezer, but I’ll be swapping it out for ground chicken the next time I make these wraps.

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb ground turkey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
1 tsp Sriracha, or more to taste
8 oz can whole water chestnuts, drained and diced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
lettuce leaves

In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the ground meat and cook until browned, breaking into small pieces as it cooks. Drain any grease and then add in the onions, garlic, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and Sriracha. Cook until the onion become translucent, approximately 1-2 minutes. Stir in the water chestnuts and green onions and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.

Scoop several tablespoons of the mixture into a lettuce leaf and eat like a taco. Enjoy!
