Slow Cooker Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  • Author:
  • Total Time: 130 minutes


Simple and delicious and packed with flavor, these chicken lettuce wraps are a great week-night meal.


  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 4 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 red bell pepper (, cored and chopped fine)
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/42 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can ((8 oz.) sliced water chestnuts, finely chopped)
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 3 scallions (, thinly sliced)
  • 1 head Bibb (, Romaine or iceberg lettuce, rinsed and pat dry)


  1. Microwave ground chicken and garlic in a medium bowl, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink, 3-5 minutes. Drain off liquid and transfer mixture to slow cooker. Stir in bell pepper, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, salt and black pepper. Cover and cook on low until chicken is tender, 2-3 hours on low.
  2. Stir in water chestnuts, rice and scallions. Let sit until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve with lettuce leaves and additional hoisin sauce (if desired).


I served these lettuce wraps along side with some egg rolls I bought at Costco. It was such a simple and delicious meal. I also added a little extra Hoisin sauce to the meat mixture, and then drizzled a little extra on top before we ate them.
