Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

This is one of those mimicked recipes from a chain restaurant, and I actually think it is better than PF Changs or Pei Wei.  And because it's homemade, it's probably a million times healthier.  I've previously used Iceburg lettuce because Boston is nearly impossible to find in my rural area, but I'm sure you'll be more lucky.

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
adapted from

1 lb ground chicken
1 tbsp minced ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 scallions, chopped
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tsp sriracha
1/4 cup peanuts, chopped
1 head of Boston lettuce, leaves separated, cleaned and dried

In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook chicken until cooked through.  Stir in ginger, scallions, garlic, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, sriracha, hoisin and cook until heated through (about 1 minute).  Remove from heat and stir in peanuts.  Serve warm wrapped in lettuce leaves.
