Copycat Pei Wei Chicken Lettuce Wraps

One of my husband’s favorite dishes from Pei Wei is the chicken lettuce wraps. If you’re a fan of PF Chang’s then you might recognize them too! That’s because the two restaurants used to be owned by the same company and still have a lot of similar items on their menus.

This is a dish that is brilliant in its simplicity — I have no idea how they get THAT much flavor out of such a short ingredients list! 

If you’ve tried either version of these Asian lettuce wraps, then you know what I mean! If you haven’t tried them yet, I promise you will LOVE them! And even better because these are low carb lettuce cups so they’re totally guilt-free!

Are PF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps Keto?

Despite the fact that there are no visible carbs, such as rice, PF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps are definitely not a low carb dish! That’s because the sauce the meat is cooked in contains hoisin sauce, which is relatively high in sugar. (And there could be added sugar too, but I can’t confirm that).

The good news is that it’s pretty easy to make a keto-friendly version of the famous PF Chang’s lettuce cups with a few simple swaps!

Why I Love This Recipe:

  • A spot-on copycat of PF Chang’s famous lettuce wraps and Pei Wei chicken lettuce wraps!
  • Only 3g net carbs and no added sugar!
  • Ready in just 20 minutes — a one pot meal!

How to Make a Low Carb Version of PF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps Sauce

PF Chang’s lettuce wraps sauce is a crave-worthy combination of sweet, salty, and umami — that special “it factor” when it comes to Asian style dishes!

To make our PF Chang’s/Pei Wei lettuce wraps sauce keto friendly, we nixed the Hoisin sauce. Soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, garlic and ginger create that delicious flavor, without all the carbs. It sounds so simple, but it works!

TIP: If you want to mimic the taste of a sweet soy sauce, add a pinch of your favorite keto friendly sweetener during the cooking process. Just a pinch is plenty! We love Lakanto brand Monk fruit sweetener — if you shop through my link and use code “SOCCERMOM” you can save 15% every time you purchase!
