Crock-Pot Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Ooohhhh yaassss, come at me chicken wraps!  

PF Chang’s is a popular restaurant chain in California that serves a lettuce wrap dish and people go gaga over them.  I ate there once and wasn’t flipping out over them to the point that I felt I would never be able to recreate them at home.  I mean, they were totally delicious, but not intimidatingly delicious, does that make sense?

Fact: I did recreate them successfully.

Fact: They are super easy!

These lettuce wraps are filling, warming, and pretty healthy without even trying to be an on trend hipster-paleo dish.  I LOVE that lol.  

The title may have been a giveaway lol, but this is indeed a Crock-Pot recipe so you can get the dinner prep crossed off your list before witching hour arrives and all hell breaks loose – or is that just my house???

To get this dish off to a great start I sauteed the chicken mince on our gas stove top first – in the Crock-Pot pot!  No switching pans and making extra dishes, the new Sear & Slow model is induction, gas and electric ready so you can make the most of those delicious flavours and keep them all in one pot!

Adapt for kids – The boys weren’t too keen on the idea of the lettuce wraps so we switched theirs out for flour tortillas and dinner was served.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
