Ingredients needed for PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps
The list of ingredients might seem long, but they are simple ingredients that you probably have on hand. I shared some of my favorite substitutions below.
- ground chicken (if your grocery store doesn’t carry ground chicken, you can use ground turkey)
- olive oil
- soy sauce (I used reduced-sodium soy sauce)
- teriyaki sauce (my favorite brand is the Kikkoman brand)
- rice wine vinegar (you can substitute apple cider vinegar)
- mushrooms (I just used fresh sliced mushrooms)
- water chestnuts (if you don’t like these, you can leave them out, but I do like the crunch that they provide)
- green onion
- fresh ginger (see my comments about fresh ginger below)
- salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste
Do I have to use fresh ginger?
I will be honest – fresh ginger is so intimidating to me!
For this recipe, it calls for just a “dash” of fresh ginger – just enough to add a little kick of flavor that makes for an authentic Asian taste and to add depth of flavor to the dish.
If you don’t have fresh ginger on hand, you can had a dash of ground ginger. Be careful to not overdo it – 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger is equal to 1 Tablespoon of fresh ginger (ground ginger is WAY more potent and powerful in food).
You could also leave the ginger out of this dish.

What kind of lettuce should you use for lettuce wraps?
When I make lettuce wraps, I prefer to use butter lettuce because the leaves are soft and easier to “wrap” around the meat. They are also the perfect size for holding in your hand.
However, a lot of people love iceberg lettuce because it is so crisp and adds a nice texture. It is also a little harder to roll. Boston lettuce is also a great choice that many people love.
