While I love PF Chang’s lettuce wraps, they have nothing on these Thai lettuce wraps. Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps recipe is so easy to make and satisfying.
Made with ground chicken, cashew nuts and served with Thai sweet chili sauce, every bite is so lip-smackingly good that you just can’t stop eating.

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps – easy, healthy and delicious chicken wraps with Thai sweet chili sauce. Takes 20 mins to make!
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1/4 small onion finely diced
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 10 oz. ground chicken
- 1/2 cup whole roasted cashew nuts
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
- 1 head butter lettuce
- 3 tablespoons Thai sweet chili sauce
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
- Pinch white sesame seeds
Mix all the ingredients for the Sauce in a small bowl, stir to combine well. Clean the butter lettuce, peel each leaf off the stem, set aside.
Heat up a wok or skillet on medium heat and add the oil. When the oil is heated, add the onion, garlic, and stir-fry until they are slightly browned. Add the ground chicken, stir continuously with the spatula, to break up the lumps. Add the cashew nuts, fish sauce, and sweet soy sauce. Stir to combine well.
Continue to cook until the filling becomes dry but remains moist. Add the cilantro and turn off the heat.
To assemble the lettuce wraps, add 1 tablespoon of the filling onto the middle of the butter lettuce, and top with some sauce. Wrap it up and eat immediately.
Really delicious awesome recipe. I want to make the lettuce wraps again but I’m having someone over for dinner…what would be a good side to make with it? I was thinking some sort of udon noodles?

Loved this recipe, great to share over a few drinks. The only thing I did different was to chop the cashew nuts. Thanks for a beautiful recipe, was so glad I couldn’t find my old one, always nice to try a new recipe especially when it’s this nice.
