This recipe has a lot of ingredients and may require shopping at a specialty Asian supermarket. All of the shopping will be worth the effort to get that wonderful copycat flavor from one of my favorite restaurants.
The first step – one I always recommend – is assembling all of your ingredients. Assembling the ingredients may be the most time consuming part of making these lettuce wraps, as the secret to this dish is in the sauce. The sauce calls for several different ingredients which lends to their rich and unique flavor profile.
Once you’ve assembled your ingredients, whisk rice wine vinegar, siracha, hoisin, sesame oil, soy sauce (or tamari) together in a small dish until well combined and set aside.
Use tamari instead of soy sauce to keep this dish gluten free.
Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in large flat-bottom skillet on the stovetop on medium-high heat until hot.
Reduce heat to medium, add onions and sauté until onions become translucent and soft, or about 3 to 5 minutes.
Add garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant o about 2 minutes.
Add ground chicken to ginger, garlic and onions and break meat apart to separate and incorporate all of the ingredients together. Cook until chicken is fully cooked, stirring occasionally. This usually takes between 8 – 10 minutes, depending on your cookware and your stove.
Add shredded carrots and sauce mixture to meat, once it has finished cooking.
Stir well, incorporating all flavors together and allow meat and sauce to cook together for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add chopped green onion and water chestnuts and remove skillet from heat.
Stir mixture thoroughly and serve in prepared lettuce leaves.
Serve immediately. Enjoy with your favorite hot or sweet chili sauce if desired, and serve with rice.
