This is one of Hannah’s favorite recipes because of how versatile it is. The chicken filling can be made into egg rolls, lettuce wraps, or even put over a bed of rice or noodles. 

The combination of all of the flavors in this dish is so perfect and savory, but also very filling! As you know, I hate onions – but if you are an onion lover like Hannah, you will love the onions in this.

This recipe is very much a PF Chang’s or California Pizza Kitchen copycat. If you’ve had either of their lettuce wraps, you know how addicting they are!

Commonly Asked Questions

What is Dark Soy Sauce?

Dark soy sauce is exactly that! It is darker, aged longer, a bit more rich in flavor, less salty, and even a bit more thick than regular soy sauce. Dark soy is going to help you get the rich color in your dish because it stains the food more than regular soy sauce. 

What if I don’t have dark soy sauce?

No need to panic! If you do not have dark soy sauce, you can simply double the amount of the light or regular soy sauce instead. Keep in mind that the color won’t be as dark or rich using only light soy sauce.

Are chicken lettuce wraps Weight Watchers friendly?

Yes! This recipe is primarily vegetables and ground chicken, which is low in calories and low in points on most plans.
