These chicken lettuce wraps are the perfect healthier PF Chang’s copycat! They’re paleo, whole30, and AIP compliant.



For the sauce

  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp almond butter (omit for AIP)
  • 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses (omit for Whole30)
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp avocado oil

For the lettuce wraps 

  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 medium white onion, diced fine
  • 1 thumb ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup water chestnuts (omit for AIP to avoid citric acid)
  • 2 tbsp green onion, chopped
  • 1 head butter lettuce


  1. Combine the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Season to taste and set aside.
  2. Using a large deep skillet, heat the avocado oil on medium heat.
  3. Add the ground chicken and salt. Cook through and use a wooden spoon to crumble the chicken.
  4. Add the onion, garlic, ginger, and mushrooms and cook for 5-6 minutes until the vegetables soften.
  5. Pour in the majority of the sauce, leaving some to serve on the side, along with the water chestnuts and green onion. Stir to combine and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  6. Serve the ground chicken mixture in a bowl with a serving spoon along with the butter lettuce leaves washed and separated, and extra sauce on the side.
