Making Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
When you’re ready to make these lettuce wraps, I like to line all of the lettuce leaves up, first. Then, you can go one by one adding the chicken, cashews, and chow mein noodles. Finally top with the yummy P.F. Chang's Teriyaki sauce.
Another way to do it is making it more of a “build your own” and let your family make it the way they like it. This is a great way to get your kids trying new flavors and opening themselves up to new things.
If they want to stick their hand in the bowl to sample the crunchy noodles or nuts – let them! You might be surprised by what they decide to put on their plate.
Low Carb Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
If you want to make this meal low carb, go for a sugar-free teriyaki sauce and omit the noodles. Other low carb recipes we like are Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice, Garlic Herb Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin, and Creamy Pesto Chicken.
What to serve with shredded chicken lettuce wraps?
This is a great light meal on it’s own. If you want to add a little something to it, I recommend serving it with a side of pot stickers. You can see my favorite way to cook frozen pot stickers here or how to make them from scratch here.
