Easy to make dinner meal for the entire family!



  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms chopped (you can use red peppers and water chestnuts too)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 12 tablespoons grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos (about) *You can substitute for soy sauce if you prefer
  • A little bunch of green onions chopped
  • Sesame oil or olive oil
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • Romaine or Boston (Butter)Lettuce


  1. Cook ground chicken in a large skillet with a little sesame oil (you can use olive oil too) until well browned. Break the ground chicken with a wooden spoon. I cooked it at medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chopped onion, grated ginger, garlic cloves, green onions, and chopped mushrooms (or peppers/water chestnuts if using).
  3. Cook for another 5 minutes approximately . Then add the coconut aminos. I used about 1/2 of a cup. Depending on how much sauce you want, start adding it little by little. Add a little maple syrup or honey and a pinch of salt and taste it. Add more coconut aminos (or soy sauce), or honey/salt if needed. It really depends on your taste.
  4. Cover the skillet and let it cook for about 5 more minutes in medium heat.
  5. Wash your lettuce leaves and start making your lettuce wraps. You can also serve them separately and make your own as you eat them.
  6. Your Chicken Lettuce Wraps are ready!
