Asian inspired chicken lettuce wraps may be one of my favorite takeout dishes. If they are on the menu, I am going to order them without fail. It makes me hungry just thinking about them. So for a long time I have been working on finding an at home version I love and a friend gave me this recipe, which is seriously good. Ground chicken, mushrooms, water chestnuts for crunch, and the perfect blend of soy, Hoisin, ginger, and garlic. And if you are anything like me you will add all kinds of Sriracha and take the spice level over the top. (A quick note, I would love to give credit to the original creator of this recipe so if you know who it is, send it my way!)
