Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Servings 6 -8 servings


  • 1-2 lbs.boneless chicken breasts or tenders
  • 1 jar hoisin sauce
  • can of water chestnuts roughly chopped
  • green onions sliced (2-4, depending on how much rice you use)
  • cooked rice I made 2 cups of rice, which results in a lot of rice
  • lettuce variety that has large leaves cleaned and patted dry


  • Cook the rice according to the package directions.
  • Grill the chicken, basting it with hoisin sauce during the last few minutes of the grilling.
  • While the chicken grills, add the green onions and water chestnuts to the finished rice.
  • Slice the grilled chicken into thin slices.
  • To assemble the wraps, lay a lettuce leaf on a plate.
  • Add some rice to the middle of the lettuce. Be careful not to use too much, or you won’t be able to wrap it.
  • Add some chicken and top with hoisin sauce if you like extra flavor.
  • These are fun to eat, but messy. Lettuce does not make a rip-proof wrap.
