PF Chang’s is a restaurant 18 year-old me considered fancy. I loved going! I would order the lettuce wraps for an appetizer and the Singapore Street Noodles (they have since changed the name) for my entree. One serving of lettuce wraps has 67 grams of carbs! Those wraps are loaded with sugar.

I had to come up with an alternative that is still tasty.

Why Are PF Changs Lettuce Wraps So High in Carbs?

Sugar. Many of the ingredients are loaded in sugar. The main culprit is hoisin sauce. Most recipes use about 1/4 cup of hoisin sauce. This equates to 36 grams of net carbs. If the wraps from PF Changs have 67 grams of carbs, then you can bet they are loading their sauce with a LOT more sugar.

For this recipe, I ditched the store-bought hoisin and chose to make my own. That way I can use a zero calorie sweetener in the sauce.

What Lettuce is Best For Wraps?

If you would like the wraps to look like they do in the restaurant, you will need to use bibb or butter lettuce. Butter lettuce is really small and perfect if you are going to use the wraps as an appetizer. Whole Foods is the only store I consistently see butter lettuce. With other supermarkets it is very hit or miss for me.

I often turn my lettuce wraps into a main dish. I love to use romaine lettuce for main dish wraps. Romaine is larger and longer than bibb/butter lettuce. It can also withstand more filling. Because this recipe has sauce, you will need to be careful with overfilling the lettuce. Romaine makes it much easier to work with.

These lettuce wraps can be great for meal prep. Pack your lettuce in Ziploc bags (air-tight) and place your chicken filling in this freezer friendly Tupperware from Amazon. You can even freeze this dish for future use!

WOW! The best thing about this recipe? That homemade hoisin sauce. I was extremely skeptical of making my own hoisin sauce because I am Asian and we grew up using the jarred Lee Kum Kee brand and always have it on hand as its a condiment used a lot in dishes. But Brandi's version is delicious! Best part? The protein can always be subbed out. I've made this recipe with shrimp and even tofu. Thank you for another awesome recipe!!!

Made this for the first time tonight and my husband and I LOVED it! I will definitely be making this again and again! A note on the sweetener in the hoisin sauce: I used 1 packet of splenda and it added the perfect touch of sweetness. Don't use a whole tbsp if you're using splenda!

Definitely a no no for splenda. Artificial sweeteners require you to convert the measurements.

Love this it’s so easy to come together. These is a great dupe of the original. Creating my own hoisin sauce was my favorite part! Most times you don’t pay much attention to what is in a sauce, so to be able to control it and it taste good.
