Chicken Lettuce Wraps are incredibly flavorful and simple to prepare! The recipe involves tossing chunks of chicken breast and mushrooms in an Asian-inspired sauce made with soy sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, and onion powder. The result is a dish that rivals any Asian restaurant's version and is perfect as a starter or dinner option.

What's more, this recipe comes together in under 30 minutes, making it an excellent choice for busy weeknights. Plus, everything is cooked in one pan, making cleanup a breeze. The fresh romaine lettuce adds a nice crunch to the saucy chicken, providing a light yet satisfying meal that is hearty enough to fill you up.

There are many reasons to try this recipe, such as its mouthwatering flavor, quick and easy preparation, and ability to satisfy hunger without feeling heavy. It's perfect for meal prep since it stores well for up to 5 days. Make a double batch and enjoy it throughout the week for quick, ready-to-go lunches that will energize and satisfy you.

To make these delicious and flavorful Chicken Lettuce Wraps, you will need a variety of ingredients. First and foremost, the sauce is critical to bring all the other flavors together. It's made up of soy sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, ginger powder, garlic powder, and onion powder. Additionally, sesame oil is used for cooking the chicken and mushrooms, but if you prefer, you can substitute it with avocado oil or olive oil.

For the filling, you'll need lean and light chicken breasts cut into chunks rather than ground chicken, as is commonly done in this dish. Mushrooms, such as diced button mushrooms and shiitake mushrooms, are added to the filling to give it some meatiness and volume without adding extra calories.

Green onions are included for a pop of color, freshness, and a bit of onion flavor. Large lettuce leaves such as romaine, Bibb, butter lettuce, or iceberg lettuce are recommended to wrap the chicken filling. Make sure to clean and dry the lettuce before using it as a wrap. Finally, sesame seeds are added as a garnish to give the dish a bit of crunch and texture.

All of these ingredients are full of nutrients and flavours that make lettuce chicken wraps a perfect meal. So without further ado, let’s move to the recipe.
