Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

But these lettuce wraps will change all that. 

Meat, seafood, veggie, or vegan, you can take all your favorite fixings and turn them into a mouthwatering wrap. 

All you need is some crisp lettuce leaves and you can satiate your cravings with these 33 lettuce wraps. 

1. PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps 

Do you love PF Chang’s chicken lettuce wraps? Skip the pricey bill and make them at home. 

This 20-minute recipe is as close to the original dish as you can get. 

Plus, it’s healthier because you control the amount of oil and sauce that go into these savory wraps.

These are excellent for a quick dinner and fly off the table as a party appetizer. 

2. Barbacoa Beef Lettuce Wraps

There’s meat, and then there’s barbacoa. 

Spanish for barbecue, barbacoa is not your run-of-the-mill stuff.

It’s a Mexican style of cooking that results in the most tender and perfectly spiced meat you’ve ever had.

And it tastes incredible in a wrap!

For this barbacoa, you’ll slow cook chuck roast in a chipotle sauce. Then, slap it on some Boston lettuce with some onions and tomatoes.

3. Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps 

Lip-smacking buffalo chicken will make you forget all about bread.

The chicken melds with tangy, sweet, and spicy flavorings like buffalo sauce and apricot preserves in the slow cooker for hours. 

Once it’s done, you’ll cook it with some creamy ingredients, then it’s ready for the wraps. 

4. Fresh Veggie Lettuce Wraps

Eating more veggies is not a problem when they taste this good. 

Pile your favorite crunchy veggies onto a leaf of Romaine lettuce with some fresh herbs and avocado. 

For some protein, add a few dollops of the Asian almond butter sauce and dig in!

5. Mexican Quinoa Salad Cups with Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing 

These are my new go-to wraps when I crave healthy Mexican food. 

They’re packed with plant protein and fork-tender sweet potatoes. My favorite part, though, is the zippy dressing. 

If you’ve got some extra time, make a batch of fresh homemade salsa to throw on top.

6. Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce Wraps 

If you’re more in the mood for Asian food, whip up these teriyaki wraps.

Each tender leaf of butter lettuce gets stuffed with a fresh, savory stir-fry swimming in homemade teriyaki sauce. 

You can mix and match the toppings. But I love adding crunchy peanuts and a sprinkle of cilantro. 

7. Chicken Taco Lettuce Wraps (Low-Carb, Paleo, Keto)

Looking for a healthy chicken wrap idea for dinner? These wraps are where it’s at!

They feature taco-seasoned chicken breast and fresh veggies with a creamy cilantro sauce. 

Skip the tortillas and serve it in Romaine lettuce for a low-carb alternative perfect for taco Tuesday. 

8. Crack Chicken Lettuce Cups

These lettuce cups are seriously addicting!

To give you a little taste, chicken breast gets flavored with cream cheese, bacon, cheddar cheese, and ranch seasoning.

They’re super cheesy, creamy, savory, and keto-friendly. Game day bites anyone?

9. Thai Lettuce Wraps (Larb Gai, Laab Gai)

Larb Gai is a traditional Thai dish I always order with my takeout. But ever since I came across this recipe, I’ve been making it at home. 

The minced chicken is tender, aromatic, umami, and has just the right amount of spice. The process is also surprisingly quick. 

When making this recipe, don’t forget the lemongrass and Thai chilies. It’s just not the same without it. 

10. Crispy Coconut Tofu Lettuce Wraps

These vegan lettuce wraps are out of this world!

The shredded coconut gives the tofu the perfect crunch with a tropical flair.

Pair that with the sweet chili sauce and you don’t need anything else.

Oh, but you will need some crispy lettuce to serve it up. 

11. Thai Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps 

Say, those coconut tofu wraps got me thinking of another favorite of mine.

These have a Thai take that melds sweet potato, cauliflower, and tofu in red curry paste.

There’s also a drizzle of creamy peanut butter sauce to enhance the flavors. 

It’s a bit spicy, creamy, and vegan-friendly. 

12. Banh Mi Chicken Burger Lettuce Wraps

If you love banh mi as much as I do, you’ll want to make these wraps tonight. 

This banh mi-inspired burger ditches the bread for lettuce, so you get nothing but protein, vitamins, and minerals. 

They’re super juicy and seasoned with garlic, ginger, and soy sauce.

In true banh mi fashion, there’s also a handful of some quick pickled veggies. 

13. Gochujang Lettuce Wraps

Searching for an easy gochujang recipe? Here’s one that only takes 20 minutes. 

Choose your protein and coat it in homemade gochujang. Then, toss it on some butter lettuce with some crunchy cucumbers and carrots. 

There’s plenty of room for improvising and you can make this as spicy or mild as you like. 

14. Asian Lentil Lettuce Wraps

Here’s another plant-based Asian lettuce wrap that’s always a winner. 

It turns red lentils into a meaty filling full of veggies and Asian seasoning. 

Don’t let the ingredient list intimidate you! I know it looks long, but these wraps are easier to throw together than you may think. 

With so much goodness, you won’t even need toppings. But if you do, walnuts add a nice crunch. 

15. Firecracker Vegan Lettuce Wraps

Meat lovers will agree that these firecracker vegan wraps are bombalicious! 

The humble mix of tofu and brown rice noodles gets fired up with a creamy, spicy firecracker sauce.

That and the tofu is super crispy from pressing and pan-frying.

The mouthwatering filling is anything but boring and lettuce adds the ideal crunch. 

16. Spicy Chickpea Lettuce Wraps

This is a fun take on lettuce wraps with a Mexican twist. 

The chickpeas get coated in taco seasoning and then fried up for a crispy texture. You can also bake them for a healthier take. 

Either way, load them up on some crisp lettuce leaves with the taco fillings of your choice.

You can’t go wrong with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, and jalapenos.

Vegan or vegetarian, these lettuce wraps are easy to make according to your diet.

17. Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Do you love ordering cashew chicken takeout? Skip the drive and whip it up at home instead. 

This restaurant-quality dish is full of the flavors you crave and you don’t have to leave home to get it.

Boneless chicken breast and unsalted cashews get smothered in a delicious Asian sauce that’s on point. 

For the lettuce, anything sturdy enough to hold the saucy filling will work. 

I like bib lettuce for its sweet and mild leaves. Although, romaine has a nice crunch.

18. Crisp Tempeh Lettuce Cups with Tahini Cream

Got a jar of tahini on hand? Here’s a tasty way to use it.

You’ll turn it into a creamy garlic sauce, then douse it on spicy tempeh. For serving, pile on crisp carrots, daikon, and kimchi. 

These spicy nibbles are great for lunch, dinner, or even a snack. 

19. Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Need a low-carb alternative for your next cookout? These chipotle chicken lettuce wraps are your solution. 

These clean eating wraps are as satisfying as they look! Marinated chipotle chicken is grilled to perfection, then topped off with a sensational mango slaw. 

The combination of flavors is so savory and fresh, that you’ll want this all summer long.

20. Greek Goddess Chicken Lettuce 

Greek goddess recipes are always so fresh and divine, and that includes these chicken lettuce wraps.

The seasoning on the chicken is already causing my mouth to water. And the pistachio basil goddess sauce has my taste buds screaming yes!

Don’t skip out on the extra toppings for this one. Pickled red onion, feta, and kalamata olives truly elevate these wraps.

21. Sticky Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Shrimp lovers, you can thank me later. Right now, let’s talk about this.

Each tender morsel of shrimp is swimming in a sticky, spicy, sweet sauce.

It’s served up on a bed of Asian salad mix all wrapped up in butter lettuce.

How long does it take, you ask? Only 20 minutes.

22. Tuna Lettuce Wrap

The best sandwich wraps with lettuce turn your favorites into low-carb meals. And if you’re a tuna lover, here’s one of the best. 

The tuna mixture is crunchy, creamy, and super quick. For lettuce, romaine is the top choice. 

If you like your tuna a little spicy, add some jalapeno peppers or a few dashes of hot sauce.

23. Thai Steak Lettuce Cups

Now, this is how you do a keto-friendly steak meal! 

Juicy strips of flank steak are dripping with a zippy Thai dressing and served up lettuce wrap style. 

For veggies, carrots and bell peppers are the ideal combo. So is butter lettuce.

24. Spicy Tuna Poke Lettuce Wraps

There is a special place in my heart reserved for these poke lettuce wraps. 

The tender bites of ahi melt in your mouth. Meanwhile, cucumber and avocado are the perfect complementary additions. 

Like ceviche, marinating poke doesn’t take long. It’s a stellar choice if you want a quick and fresh seafood meal.

25. Keto BLT Lettuce Wraps

Have you been on the hunt for more easy keto sandwiches? Here’s a classic to add to the mix.

These four-ingredient lettuce wraps have all the fillings you love about a BLT, minus the bread.

Lettuce wraps seriously don’t get any easier than this!

26. 15-Minute Sweet & Sour Lettuce Wraps

These lettuce wraps are very savory, crunchy, and quick. 

Crushed pineapple makes the sauce delightfully sweet and sour. Meanwhile, it calls for coconut aminos, so it’s also soy-free.

While it calls for pork, you can swap out the protein for anything you like.

27. Chicken Sausage Lettuce Wraps

Do something different with your chicken dinner and whip up these scrumptious wraps. 

The chicken sausage is very umami and a hint spicy. Plop it on a large leaf of lettuce and spoon the dipping sauce on top. 

I think a dollop of sweet chili sauce or Sriracha will also go well.

28. Healthy Vegan Lettuce Wraps

There are a ton of incredible healthy vegan wraps. But this is my go-to when I need something fast. 

These lettuce wraps take less than 15 minutes, and they’re overflowing with veggies. 

While the recipe calls for tempeh, you can also make these with tofu.

29. Vietnamese Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Looking for a healthy and light Asian lettuce wrap? This one is my absolute favorite. 

Each leaf of butter lettuce has large succulent prawns, crunchy veggies, and creamy avocado. 

There’s also a nouc chom sauce to top it all off! This Vietnamese sauce is spicy and umami, making it the ideal condiment for these wraps.

Summer lunches or dinners, these seafood wraps are what you want on a sweltering hot day.

30. Lettuce Wrapped Cheeseburger

Ditch the carbs and go protein-style with your juicy cheeseburger. 

The key to these burgers is using the right spices and I love the blend this recipe uses.

It’s a four-ingredient blend that adds just enough flavor with what you’ve got on hand. 

You can slap on any cheese you like, just make it something that melts easily. 

31. Chicken and Cheese Lettuce Wraps

When the kids are hungry and you’re short on time, these chicken and cheese wraps will come to the rescue.

Simply throw some sliced veggies, cooked chicken, cheese, and sour cream on some lettuce, then roll it up. 

This is a great use of leftover chicken and a terrific 5-minute meal to save you in a pinch.

32. Korean Chicken Lettuce Wraps 

Fresh, healthy, and flavorful, these Korean-style lettuce wraps are an all-around crowd-pleaser.

It has juicy chicken, crisp cucumber, cilantro, and a yummy garlic chili sauce. 

Want to know the best part? It only takes 30 minutes. 

33. 15 Minutes Korean Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps 

How does a quick, juicy pork belly lunch sound? That’s what I thought.

The thinly sliced pork belly has a gorgeous crisp texture and irresistible flavor. 

I like to add kimchi and some pickled red onions. But don’t overdo it. You want the pork belly to shine.
