Classic chicken lettuce wraps with sautéed chicken filling, crispy lettuce leaves and a delicious sauce! Great as an appetizer or even a meal.


Units Scale
  • 1 large skinless and boneless chicken breast, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon brown sugar
  • sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 heaping cup mini pepper or bell pepper mix, diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, any kind, diced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • iceberg lettuce leaves

For the drizzling sauce:

  • 1 teaspoon hot mustard
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon less sodium soy sauce (coco aminos if gluten free)
  • 1 teaspoon red chili paste


  1. Place diced chicken breast in a medium bowl. Add cornstarch, brown sugar, 1/4 tsp sea salt and 1/4 tsp ground black pepper. Toss well and set aside.
  2. While the chicken is marinating, chop the peppers and mushrooms.
  3. Next, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, dissolve hot mustard in hot water. Add soy sauce and red chili paste. Stir until even and creamy.
  4. In a large nonstick pan, heat up oil over high heat. Add chicken and toss for 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.
  5. Place mushrooms and sweet mini peppers in the same pan. Sauté for 1 minute with the remaining oil.
  6. Now add the chicken back. Sprinkle a small pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Turn off the heat and toss everything in the pan quickly.
  8. Dish out the chicken filling. When serving, place a scoop of the filling on one lettuce wrap leaf; drizzle a few drops of sauce; wrap it up and enjoy!
