Copycat P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Are you hungry? Cuz I made you dinner tonight.

A 5-star  recipe for P.F. Chang's Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Why go out to eat when you can get the best of P.F. Chang's at home.

I know. I’m cool like that. But I’m sorry you can’t be here to share it with me…ummmm, because it may already be eaten! :)

I’m sure you’re thinking that lettuce wraps are really an appetizer. But I beg to differ because if you couple these with chicken fried rice, then you’re in for an amazing meal.

Why go out to eat when you can get the best of P.F. Chang’s at home? These chicken lettuce wraps come pretty darn close to P. F. Chang’s minus the mung bean noodles. P.F. Chang’s version has mung noodles, but because I didn’t have those on hand, I didn’t use them. But if you truly want the authentic version, add the noodles.

Instead of using vegetable oil or olive oil, use sesame oil. Vegetable oil, canola oil or the like just don’t compare when cooking Asian food. And if you haven’t tried hoisin or sriracha sauce? Don’t skimp. Skimp on the noodles, but not the sauces. They truly make these lettuce wraps authentic. Not sure what hoisin or sriracha sauce is? You can find them in the Asian aisle at most grocery stores or you can purchase hoisin or sriracha through my store.

  1. Oh my goodness..seriously so good!!..you got 51/2stars out of 6 from my family of 6. Why the half? Because my son thought it was a bit too spicy for him. I did reduce the srarachi to 2tsp and just put a little of the ginger but other than that..so good. Thanks so much…p.s. I had to keep from licking my plate…TMI. sorry.

  2. Loved it! Wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you

  3. Thank you for the wonderful recipe! I hope you don’t mind that I shared it on my blog. It is my to go favorite lettuce wrap recipe and it was perfectly close to the appetizer from the restaurant. Thank you again!

  4. Well Jen, I made your recipe for the lettuce wraps today. I was a bit nervous about how they would turn out.my son and daughter in law were here for dinner, and were both very impressed. My wife I thought they tasted just like P.F. Chang’s. Thank you for the recipe. We will be having them again soon.

  5. Too hot!! Less srrhancha sauce.

  6. Not even close! Way too hot to the taste! I don’t know what P.F. Chang’s YOU ate at to attempt to copy this, but I just got done following your recipe and it is awful!
    My mouth was burning—I’ll be dumping it down the disposal! Yuck!
    Try again!

    • Wow Sally, could you have been any more of a witch?! Go get an attitude adjustment

      • be humble be kind says:

        wow you are pretty darn rude! if you didnt like then a simple “i didnt like it” would do, no need to be so dramatic and over do it! maybe you should try again with your attitude towards to people who are at least posting recipes for others to try. perhaps it was your bad attitude that left a sour taste in your mouth which made you not like the recipe…just saying

  7. I made these tonight and they are amazing to say the least. I love the wraps at Chang’s and these were a great knock off!! Thanks!!!

  8. Kari Lipscomb says:

    Hello there! Love your posts. :) What brand Hoisin sauce do you use? I’m not sure why, but when I made this tonight, it had a licorice flavor. Did I do something wrong?? Is there any way to lessen that flavor?

  9. I am definitely sure that P.F. Changs uses Black bean sauce coupled with hoisin sauce..Also you can use the wraps like used for mu shu.

  10. Chrsitine says:

    I’m pretty sure PF Changs uses mushrooms in their filling.

  11. I made this tonight and it was yummy. The family loved it. I used egg noodles for the kids and the hubby and I had it with butter lettuce. I will definitely make this again.

  12. What are mung bean noodles?

  13. One of my favorites, can’t visit a PF Chang’s and not have lettuce wraps. Thanks for sharing especially since the closest one is a 4 hour drive!

  14. What is sriracha sauce and where do you get it?

    • Helloooo my friend! Sriracha sauce is a hot sauce. You can get sriracha sauce in the Asian aisle of the grocery store. I provided a link to a picture in the post so you can see what it looks like. I hope that helps!
