A Healthier Version of PF Chang’s Asian Lettuce Wraps
Happy Valentines Day! I wish I could take credit for this healthier version of PF Chang ‘s Asians lettuce wraps but it’s a combination of my friend Paula’s twist where she combined two different recipes she found, along with some of my own additions to pump up the nutrition in the recipe (you know I have to put chia seeds in everything so this recipe is no different)!
This recipe is neither Phase 1 or Phase 2 due to a few ingredients like rice wine vinegar, soy sauce (which you could substitute with coconut amino acids to keep it soy free), and the hoisin sauce which you can also find soy and gluten free. This recipe is perfect for entertaining. The flavors are so vibrant and delicious yet it has some many healthy ingredients including garlic, ginger, chicken breast, lettuce, cilantro, water chestnuts, chia and sunflower seeds. Enjoy!
