  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup plum sauce (or Chinese duck sauce)
  • 4 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons oil (canola, grapeseed, olive or coconut)
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup scallions (green onions), thinly sliced plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup any color of bell pepper (I used yellow), seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup water chestnuts, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 heads butter lettuce


  • In a small bowl, mix together the hoisin sauce, plum sauce and rice wine vinegar. Set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok or skillet over high heat. Add the ground chicken and cook stirring often for about 4 - 6 minutes or until not longer pink.
  • Remove the chicken form the wok/skillet and drain the excess liquid.
  • Add the remaining oil into the wok/skillet, add the ginger, garlic, scallions (green onions) and bell pepper. Stir fry for about 1 - 2 minutes. Return the ground chicken back to the wok/skillet and mix well to combine. 
  • Add the water chestnuts and the sauce mixture and stir to incorporate. Stir fry for about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped cilantro. Garnish with sliced scallions (optional)
  • Clean and separate the lettuce leaves. Place two generous tablespoons of filling in each lettuce leaf and roll up to eat.
