What Do You Use for Lettuce Wraps
There are three main ingredients for lettuce wraps recipe: chicken, fresh lettuce leaves and hoisin sauce. You will need ground chicken. For lettuce wraps, if you use iceberg lettuce or butter lettuce.
How Do You Cut Lettuce for Lettuce Wraps
Get a head of iceberg lettuce or butter lettuce. Cut off the bottom stem. Seperate each leaf for wrapping. If the leaves are too big, cut it into halves. If you use butter lettuce, usually the leaves are smaller so you don’t have to cut them.
Lettuce Wraps Sauce
For the wraps sauce, I love a spicy and savory sauce, so I use Chinese Hoisin sauce and mix it with Sriracha. The sauce should be a bit watery, so mix and dilute the sauce with some warm water. Wrap the lettuce wraps with the ground chicken and spoon the sauce over it.
How to Make Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Directions: marinate the ground chicken with soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil and scallions. Then mix the dipping sauces. Cook the ground chicken mixture in a wok until fully cooked, about 2 minutes. To assemble, carefully peel off the lettuce leaves from the iceberg lettuce head. Be careful not to break the leaves. To serve, just add the chicken on a lettuce leaf, spoon the sauce over and enjoy!
