I’m a sucker for just about anything that is wrapped in lettuce!  What makes this recipe even better is that it is so simple and easy.  Plus it can be made ahead of time so it’s perfect for those days when you need a quick meal in minutes.


  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken breast (about 8 ounces)
  • 4 ounces fresh pea pods, cut into 1-inch-long pieces
  • 1/2 of a medium cucumber, quartered lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup red pepper cut into bite-size strips
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 8 butterhead (Bibb or Boston) lettuce leaves


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce and crushed red pepper.  Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chicken, pea pods, cucumber, sweet pepper, and green onions.
  3. Pour dressing over chicken mixture; toss to combine. Cover and chill for up to 4 hours.
  4. To serve, divide chicken mixture among lettuce leaves, placing mixture at one end of each leaf. Fold up bottom edge of lettuce over filling; roll up lettuce leaf.
