Slow Cooker Chicken Lettuce Wraps came about after I had done a search of the web for slow cooker meals. They sounded easy peasy and very yummy. Most of the recipes I came across called for ground chicken. I decided I would use some boneless skinless chicken breasts I had in the freezer instead and just shred them. I really loved the sauce on these too. I didn’t want to do a bbq sauce and really wanted them to have more of an Asian feel.

My two boys opted to have theirs on buns and they said they were DELICIOUS! These are definitely going in the recipe rotation. These would be perfect in the heat of the summer when you just don’t feel like cooking. They are also great if you are looking for a fresh idea for freezer slow cooker cooking. Just throw the chicken, sauces, and ginger in a freezer bag. I hope your family enjoys these as much as we did.

    What is hoisin sauce?

  2. Kayleigh says:

    When you say a bottle of Hoisin Sauce, how big of a bottle are you referring to? The bottle I bought is 455mL.

    • I am pretty sure the bottle I used was a smaller bottle like 8.5 ounces.

      • Oh no 🙁 Of course I start wondering about the size of the bottle AFTER I poured a whole 22 ounce bottle in the bag with the chicken! It was the only Hoisin I saw at the store. I guess I’ll double up the rest of the ingredients rather than pouring out half of the sauce…into the trash. Hope it’s good, lol.

        BTW, we just the hot roast beef sandwiches tonight. They were delicious! That was my first ever crockpot meal! Thanks for all of the recipes and tips!

        • you won’t regret having double the chicken! It’s so good 🙂 (I ate left overs on a salad!) The hot roast beef sandwiches are my husbands favorites – he asks for them all the time! Glad you liked them too

          • Thanks for your quick response Heather! I ended up letting go of half the sauce, it’s just me and my husband, no kids…we’ll already have leftovers. I can’t wait for him to get home…the chicken looks amazing! Came out perfectly cooked. I have now ziplisted so many of your recipes, I have lost count. I really appreciate the variety of less ‘comfort food’ type meals and also Asian and Mexican items. I have a feeling the roast beef sandwiches will be my husband’s fave as well. He has already hinted at how great they would be when we have company over for football. 🙂 Thanks again!

          • My Pleasure 🙂 and yes…my husband isn’t really a crock pot pot roast kind of guy so we try to keep changing it up!

  3. Can I freeze the peppers and onions with the chicken?

  4. any suggestions for a substitute for the broccoli slaw? (I’m not a slaw fan)

  5. Could you use ground turkey and still cook it in the crock pot? How long and at what temp, if so?

    • Rebecca says:

      I bet ground turkey would be great in these lettuce wraps! I googled how long you would need to cook ground turkey in the crock pot and it said to cook on low 1-3 hours. Good luck! Hope they turn out yummy!

  6. Do you need to cube or cut the chicken ahead of time, prior to placing in freezer bag?

  7. This recipe looks fantastic! Can’t wait to try it soon. I think we’ll do Hawaiian rolls instead of the rice, so the kids can have the chicken on a roll (hopefully with some veggies!), and we’ll have lettuce wraps.

    It’s a million degrees here in Texas, and I thought I’d put the crockpot away until November, but now I’ll get it out and try a bunch of these recipes! It’s so nice to come home after a long work day to a house smelling awesome from the crockpot cooking.
