- 1 tbsp cooking oil
- 1 lb ground chicken or turkey
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 can (8 oz) whole water chestnuts, drained and chopped
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 2 tbsp soy sauce

- 1 head lettuce (butter or Bibb lettuce is best)
Over medium heat, heat cooking oil in a non-stick pan. Add ground chicken (or turkey) and minced garlic. Cook until browned and meat is crumbly. (About 4-5 minutes.)
Add the water chestnuts. Stir in the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and ginger powder. Add Sriracha sauce (if desired), Mix together until well combined. Cook for 2-3 minutes until everything looks delicious and saucy.
Before removing from heat, stir in the green onions and cook for 1 minute.
Spoon the meat mixture onto a lettuce leaf and enjoy. At our house, we eat family style. The lettuce leaves go on a platter, and the ground meat mixture goes into a bowl. It’s yummy and so much fun.
