  • 1 head butter lettuce, separated into leaves, rinsed, and dried


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 ounces button mushrooms, stems removed and finely diced
  • 1 small white onion, finely diced
  • 8 ounce can of water chestnuts, drained and finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 4 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil


  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 2 shoots green onions, diced


  1. Separate, rinse, and dry the leaves of the butter lettuce. Or, wash the lettuce in a salad spinner and set aside.


  1. Heat up oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add chicken, season it with salt and pepper, and cook until no longer pink.

  2. Add the mushrooms and onions, and cook until soft (about 5-6 minutes).

  3. Add the water chestnuts, ginger, and garlic and cook for 1 more minute.


  1. In a medium bowl, combine hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Whisk to combine evenly. Reserve 1/2 cup of the sauce and set aside to use as a condiment for your wrap. Pour the remaining sauce over the chicken mixture and cover, cooking on low for another 5 minutes.

  2. Fill each lettuce leaf with 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture. Top with the reserved sauce, sesame seeds, and green onion.
