Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry Romaine Wraps with Citrus Soy. Recipe courtesy of P.F. Chang's China Bistro. I found this recipe on the official p.f changs website.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice the chicken into tiny pieces. Place the chicken in a mixing bowl and add 2 tablespoons soybean oil, ginger, garlic, chili flakes and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Mix together in circular motion until well mixed.
  2. Let marinate in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.
  3. Mix together the citrus juices, soy, and hoisin sauce with a whisk. Reserve until needed.
  4. Clean the romaine lettuce, chopping off the stem, peeling each ‘spear’ and running under clean cold water. Reserve in refrigerator until ready to use. Chop scallions into rings and reserve chilled.
  5. Coat a very hot sauté pan lightly with soybean or vegetable oil.
  6. Lay the chicken around the sauté pan being careful not to lay too many on top of each other. Sear the chicken until crispy and golden brown, about 2 ½ minutes. Once chicken is brown, toss gently in pan and sear another 2 ½ minutes. The pan will appear to “burn”, but that is the carmelization and where all the flavor comes from.
  7. Add ½ of the citrus soy mixture to the sauté pan and coat well. Let the sauce coat the chicken until it is glazed, and thickens on the chicken. Add more or less depending on how “wet” you want your mixture. Spoon chicken onto a plate.
  8. Wrap the chicken mixture in romaine lettuce and top with scallion rings. Serve and enjoy!
  9. *Fun fact: this recipe can also be done with baby shrimps, fish or beef.

I find it hard to believe this is an original. I found it had way too much ginger and say sauce. I could hardly eat it. I will definitely NOT be using this recipe again. There is no reason to even start 'tweaking' this one as I am much better off finding a recipe I wouldn't have to re-invent.

Yes, this IS an actual recipe for P.F. Lettuce Wraps and it does appear on the P.F. Chang website under, "Chef's Corner." P.F. Chang's does not serve this version in any of the restaurants I have been to but, maybe they do somewhere in the World. It is their recipe. They call it "Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry Romaine Wraps." <br/><br/>Mojoloh is right! Thank you for posting this recipe.

This is not the original recipe, I can assure you of that. And P.F. Chang's doesn't use romaine lettuce either
