  • 1 Tbsp. oil avocado or olive
  • 1 cup onion finely minced
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 2 tsp. minced ginger
  • 1 lb. ground chicken 93/7
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce or a gluten-free hoisin
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce or Tamari sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp. sriracha sauce optional
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil toasted
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. salt to taste
  • 8 oz. water chestnuts diced, drained
  • 2-3 green onions finely chopped
  • 8 leaves Bibb or Butter lettuce


  1. Add oil to a large skillet over medium heat and add onion. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion becomes tender. Stir in garlic and ginger and continue sautéing for an additional minute.

  2. Push the onion to the side and add the ground chicken. Cook for 7-8 minutes, or until cooked through. Once cooked, mash the chicken with a potato masher to get a really fine crumble.

  3. While the chicken is cooking, whisk together the hoisin, soy sauce, rice vinegar, Sriracha sauce, sesame oil, black pepper and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Pour in the sauce and add the water chestnuts. Cook over medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Serve chicken in a leaf of Bibb or butter lettuce with a sprinkle of green onions and enjoy!

  • To Reheat: Return the leftovers to a skillet on the stove over medium-heat, or quickly warm in the microwave.
