Yields 4-6 servings // Cook time 30 minutes


  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 8-ounce can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Iceberg lettuce, rinsed and drained

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm 1 Tbsp sesame oil. Add garlic and half the chopped onion. Cook 3-4 minutes, until onion is soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the ground chicken and ginger to the skillet. With a spatula, break the chicken up into small chunks. Cook until chicken is cooked through, 8-10 minutes.  Remove from heat.

2. Stir in the rest of the onion, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and rice wine vinegar.

3. Fold in water chestnuts, green onion, sesame oil and peanuts.

4. Serve on a bed of lettuce with a side of soy sauce and hoisin sauce, if desired.

    Yum! These look absolutely delicious. I am on the hunt for recipes with minimal cooking. It’s just way too hot in Southern California right now!

    I ate lunch at an Asian restaurant today which features a diversity of Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes. I almost ordered the lettuce wraps, but opted for something I hadn’t tried before.
    Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    I’m going to try this. I have ground turkey. I’m assuming it’s ok to substitute with that? Thanks for sharing!

      Yes, ground turkey would work great as well! Let me know how it worked out :)

    I love lettuce wraps! Yours look delicious, I’ll have to try out this recipe. I’ve made them before without chicken (just adding in more veggies to compensate) and they came out great!

    • April Murray on May 5, 2014 at 2:08 pm

      That sounds delicious, a perfect summer recipe!

    I’ve just tried this recipe for lunch today and loved it! I used cashew instead of chestnut because it was what I had on hand and ground beef instead of chicken for the same reason. Also added some carrot to the mix and they were delicious! :-) Thanks for sharing!

      Glad you enjoyed!!! I love the idea of adding carrots :)
