Move over P.F. Changs…. these delicious Paleo Chicken Lettuce wraps will have your tastebuds thinking you are being naughty.  



Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce, I used Coconut Secret Brand
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp ketchup, I used primal kitchen
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown monk fruit sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Chicken Lettuce Wraps Ingredients:

  • 2 lb boneless chicken thigh, minced
  • 2 packages butter lettuce, rinse and dry 
  • 8 crimini mushrooms, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 serrano pepper, minced (seeds removed if you prefer it less spicy)
  • 6 oz can of sliced water chestnuts, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 inch knob of ginger, grated
  • Avocado Oil


  1. Start off by mixing up the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Grab a large wok or pan and heat on medium-high.  Once hot, add in 2 tbsp of Avocado Oil and let it heat up. Add in the minced chicken and season with a nice pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes, tossing often. 
  3. Add in the mushrooms, carrots, and shallot. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 6 minutes, stirring often.  
  4. Add the serrano pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Now add in the garlic and ginger and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  5. Remove pan from heat and drain out almost all of the oil and place back on stove on medium-high heat. Saute for 4 minutes to get a nice sear on everything mixing often.
  6. Add in 1/2 of the sauce mixture and cook for 4 minutes stirring often. Once done, add in the remainder of the sauce and the diced water chestnuts and cook for 4 minutes stirring often.
  7. Serve on top of the wraps and enjoy!
