Spicy Lettuce Wraps


  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 2 tablespoons OLEA's Baklouti Fused Olive Oil (plus extra for drizzling)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon OLEA's Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 cup water chestnuts, diced
  • 1/3 cup green onions, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Whole lettuce leaves (like Bibb or butter lettuce), for serving
  • Optional garnishes: chopped peanuts, fresh cilantro, lime wedges


  • Heat the Baklouti pepper olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onion, garlic, and ginger, sautéing until the onions become translucent and fragrant.
  • Increase the heat to medium-high and add the ground chicken to the skillet. Break it apart with a spatula.
  • Cook until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper during cooking.
  • Reduce the heat to medium. Stir in hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil, mixing well.
  • Add the diced water chestnuts and cook for another 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  • Stir in the chopped green onions just before removing from heat.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • Spoon the chicken mixture into individual lettuce leaves.
  • Drizzle a little more Baklouti pepper olive oil over each wrap for extra spice.
  • Garnish with chopped peanuts, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice if desired.

Serve immediately, allowing each person to wrap their own lettuce around the chicken mixture.
