Save money and grind your own chicken for these Asian-style lettuce wraps filled with a flavorful mixture of ground chicken, hoisin sauce, lime juice, fresh ginger and sweet chili sauce. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Attach food grinder attachment to electric stand mixer according to manufacturer's instructions. Grind chicken with garlic according to manufacturer's instructions using the fine grinding plate.

These are really good with a few additions. I think the recipe itself is missing something. I added more soy (and definitely use low sodium; the first time I used regular and it was way too salty). I also added some of the sweet chili sauce to the ground chicken, plus more sesame oil, garlic powder, carrots and cayenne. With those additions, yum!

2 of us ate the entire batch in one sitting. It was pretty tastey, but it was missing something...

Yummy, I added green beans, used ground chicken which made it quicker to make on a week night, and added almonds for crunch. Next time I'd probably add water chestnuts. Also I like ginger so grated it in. This is a keeper.

Very good recipe with a lot of flavor! I added shredded carrots and bean threads to help stretch the recipe for more servings.
