These were good, and I will definitely make them again. They are messy but when are lettuce wraps not? This was another Pinterest find. My version varies slightly; no rice, no chestnuts, chicken browned on stove, and everything put in crockpot at once.

Time: 6-8 slow cooker hours + 15-20 minutes prep

Skill Level: I AM NO LONGER PUTTING SKILL LEVEL. I believe 90% cooking is easy but some recipes take more effort than others and that’s really what drives a person to make a meal or not. SO, from now on I will put an effort level instead of a skill level. 

Effort: Minimal effort required

Amount: Approximately 10 lettuce wraps.

You need: 

  • 2lbs ground chicken (not chicken breasts)
  • 3 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 red bell pepper – chopped
  • 1/2 onion – chopped
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 TBl soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 green onion
  • 1 Tbl rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 head of iceburg lettuce

Do this: 

  1. I’m not sure this is absolutely necessary but I cooked the chicken in a large skillet on the stovetop until almost cooked through and drained off the water before adding to the crockpot.
  2. Add everything to the crockpot, except your lettuce of course, and set on low for 6-8 hours.
  3. Cut the head of lettuce in half. The inner pieces are the best to use for the wraps.
  4. Enjoy
