Skip the takeout and try this easy recipe for restaurant style Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps loaded with flavor and ready to serve in about 30 minutes!
Have you ever had the Chicken Lettuce Wraps from P.F. Chang’s?
This is my version of them and they are so good!
If you have never tried them before you need to add them to your must try list stat. Better yet, just make these and you don’t even need to leave your house.
Living in the ‘burbs the closest P.F. Chang’s is about 30 minutes from me. While that isn’t that far for some people and if you asked me ten years ago I’d say a thirty minute driving is a breeze. Back then I would commute up and down 95 from Port St. Lucie to West Palm Beach, Florida which was an hour in good traffic each way. And don’t even get me started about the few years we lived in Fredericksburg, VA. Driving on the 95 to go to D.C. or Alexandria is just nuts. That’s some serious traffic! It almost seems silly for me to even whine about a thirty minute drive. Don’t get me wrong, I drive around A LOT. Sometimes I feel like I’m mom’s taxi service shuttling the kiddos to and from school and after school activities, running errands and appointments, you name it. All that windshield time in the car even though if it’s ten minutes here, five minutes here adds up. So if I can make yummy restaurant style meals right in the comfort of my own comfy kitchen without driving anywhere you bet I am no matter if it’s a five minute drive or a thirty minute drive!
Mr. Mother Thyme knows how much I love Chicken Lettuce Wraps and since he commutes all the time for work thankfully from time to time he’d pick some up for me. Saves me the drive, right? But honestly since I started making them at home he never needs to stop and I think they are so much better.
These wraps are loaded with some amazing flavor that is simliar to Mu Shu Chicken and of course P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps. And since I know Mr. Mother Thyme goes crazy for these every time I make them I often double up on the chicken mixture not only for him but any leftovers I have I love to toss in a Asian Chicken Salad loaded with chopped lettuce, mandarin oranges, almonds, some won ton strips tossed with an Asian Sesame Dressing. It’s almost like two meals in one.
So skip the takeout or in my case the thirty minute drive and whip up these yummy wraps at home.
