These Asian lettuce wraps are ready in only 15 minutes and use the BEST ground turkey filling! They're an easy, healthy copycat of the famous PF Chang's lettuce wraps.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or sesame oil)
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 (8 oz) can water chestnuts, chopped
  • ¼ cup green onions, white & light green plus additional green for serving
  • 1 head bib lettuce


  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Make the sauce: in a small bowl, stir together the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, peanut butter red, pepper flakes (optional, for spice), and black pepper.
  2. Cook the turkey: add the oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, cook and crumble the turkey for 5 - 7 minutes until browned and cooked through. Drain any excess grease.
  3. Add the sauce: pour the sauce into the skillet. Toss the turkey to coat it in the sauce and cook for 1 - 2 minutes.
  4. Add water chestnuts and green onions: stir water chestnuts and green onions into the skillet, cooking and stirring for 1 - 2 minutes. Reserve some chopped green onions for garnish (optional).
  5. Serve: serve warm on the bib lettuce leaves.


  • To make this recipe gluten-free: swap out the soy sauce for coconut aminos or Tamari sauce.
