Copycat PF Chang's Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Love PF Chang's food but the closest one is 20-25 minutes away.  There are also some folks in the tailgate that are on the Atkin's Diet so I was looking for a recipe that didn't have a lot of carbs.

Found this recipe on the web when I did a google search for "Lettuce Wraps from PF Changs".  Thought I would give this a shot.  I modified the original recipe that I found.

I've got to say its similar to PF Chang's but not exactly the same.  But it was really really good.



  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsps red wine
  • 2 tsps water
  • 2 tsps soy sauce

Filling Ingredients
  • 1.5 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced small
  • 5 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp of ground ginger
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of shittake mushrooms
  • Few shakes of minced onions
  • 1/2 can of bean sprouts (drained)
  • 1 can (8oz) of water chesnuts (drained)

Cooking Sauce

  • 1 tbsp hoison sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp red wine
  • 2 tbsps oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsps cornstarch

Lettuce leaves (washed)


Mix all the ingredients for "cooking sauce" and set aside.

In bowl, combine marinade ingredients and mix well.  Add chicken and stir to coat.  Stir in 1 tsp of oil and set sit for 15 mins.

Heat wok or frying pan over medium-high heat.  Add 3 tsp of oil.  Add chicken and stir fry for 3-4 mins.  Set aside.

Add 2 tsp of oil to the pan.  Add ginger, garlic and minced onions. for a minute or so.  Add mushrooms, bean sprouts, and water chesnuts.  Stir and cook for 2 mins.

Return chicken to the pan.  Add cooking sauce to the pan.  Cook until thickened and hot.

To serve, pour the mixture into a lettuce leaf and eat like a burrito.  (NOTE:  make sure that the mixture is drained a little before putting in the lettuce leaf or it will get soggy)
