  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup mushrooms chopped (I used Baby Bella)
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 head butter lettuce or whichever lettuce you have on hand
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds lightly toasted (optional)
  • Sauce:
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut aminos or Tamari soy sauce if you’re not GF
  • 1 Tablespoon white vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce or sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp oyster Sauce or more hoisin, coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • ¼ cup vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Topping:
  • 1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut aminos or Tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce or sriracha, or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • Heat oil: Heat 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add in chicken: Stir in the ground chicken to the hot oil and stir with a wooden spoon to break it up. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper (to your taste).
  • Cook the chicken and garlic: Keep cooking the chicken, breaking it up with the wooden spoon. After 5 minutes, add in the garlic and stir to combine.
  • Stir in mushrooms: Add in the mushrooms and stir together with the chicken and garlic. Keep cooking until the chicken cooks all the way through (another 5-7).
  • Prep sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the sauce.
  • Add sauce and scallions: As soon as the chicken is cooked through, add in the sauce and the scallions. Stir to combine and let it simmer on a low heat for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle on the sesame seeds (optional).
  • Prep topping: While it simmers, prep the topping, and lay out your lettuce leaves on a serving dish.
  • Assemble: When ready to assemble, spoon in a couple of tablespoons of the chicken filling into each lettuce leaf and drizzle on some of the topping (or hot sauce or coconut aminos, whatever you like). Enjoy!
