P.F. Paleo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Cavegirl Cuisine Cookbook

This recipe can be found in my cookbook!

My mom and I love to go to P.F. Chang’s China Bistro for lunch as I can usually order simple salmon and broccoli for my meal.  Occasionally, as a “cheat” we’ll get a glass of chardonnay and split the  chicken lettuce wraps  ~ it’s such a treat!  So, today I decided to use their appetizer as an inspiration for my own version of their lettuce wraps.

These lettuce wraps have been one of the most popular, if not the most popular, recipes on the site. Because of this, I included them in my Cavegirl Cuisine Cookbook so they will always be at your fingertips!

P.F. Paleo Chicken Lettuce Wraps


  • 16 Boston lettuce leaves
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 5 ounces shiitake mushrooms, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup scallions, chopped
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha (Whole30 Sriracha)
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. In a skillet, heat sesame oil on medium heat.  Add ground chicken.  Cook until almost done.
  2. Add mushrooms, scallions, ginger and coconut aminos.  Cook until onions and mushrooms are limp.  Stir in garlic, almonds, white wine vinegar, mustard, Sriracha, honey and salt.
  3. Serve the chicken mixture in a bowl with the lettuce cups on the plate.  Let your guests spoon the mixture in the center of the leaves and then hold like a soft taco to eat.
  4. Enjoy!

  7. Just made these for dinner. I substituted leftover Thanksgiving turkey that I minced finely, then followed the remainder of the recipe as written….SO DELICIOUS!! I WILL be making these again!! :) Thanks for posting this! My daughter even commented 'Not so bad for being turkey!'…and she doesn't even eat turkey on Thanksgiving!!

  8. Thank you for this recipe. It is AMAZING!!!! Love it. Really enjoying your website. Thank!

  9. AMAzING…I have made these three times now and wowed family and friends over Christmas and New years. My new favorite go-to recipe. I bring them everywhere so I have something I can eat…and they are so nummy! I modified to Whole30 friendly, omitting the honey and using Franks hot sauce (no sugar). and Target brand, Market Pantry, dijon mustard, as Grey Poupon has sugar in it. enjoy!

      Yay! So glad to hear this! I don't use Grey Poupon either…there is a brand from Trader Joe's that I use. Happy New Year!!

  10. These were phenomenal. I just substituted boneless skinless chicken breast (chopped with my handy Pampered Chef manual processor). Yum!

  15. I be aware of that chicken lettuce wraps is most delicious. thank you so much for your good recipe. by the way, if you want to buy little so products with low-rate so quickly you can go our best soy sauce.


  17. These were great! Thanks for the recipe. Will make again and again!

  18. This recipe is very much like cabbage rolls that my parents and grandparents and so on make. Its amazing how far we have ventured away from traditional foods that people would think this is new or Paleo. There are several ingredients in here that would not of existed in Paleo times. Same concept just different ingredients.

    • True ~ but I don't think the concept of Paleo is so strict to think that we need to eat exactly like the caveman. Rather, it is just trying to get back to the basics and avoiding processed foods,etc. The concept of my site is trying to take the Paleo "ingredient list" and just making some fun food. :-)
