I used to love the lettuce wraps at that popular Asian chain restaurant, and they are totally the inspiration for this dish. Of course this recipe is a healthier version using real ingredients and my favorite soy-free alternatives to still get that classic taste. Flavorful ground chicken wrapped in crunchy lettuce leaves seems like a perfect paleo dinner option, but most recipes for this Thai-inspired dish aren't paleo-friendly since the sauce includes ingredients like soy sauce and cornstarch. These Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps are reminiscent of PF Chang's Chicken Lettuce Wraps, yet they're gluten-free, paleo-friendly and much healthier.
