*See recipe card for quantities
📋Variations & Substitutions
- Hot Sauce- you can use a sweet Thai chili sauce to change it up!
- Chicken - you can use chicken breast, chicken thighs, chicken tenders or leftover chicken
- Noodles -you can use vermicelli, angel hair, egg noodles or ramen noodle - whatever you have on hand!
- Lettuce - I use green leaf lettuce but you can use bibb lettuce, even head lettuce, butter lettuce or whatever kind of lettuce you prefer (using a smaller variety of lettuce with smaller leaves will result in something more like a lettuce cup)
- Spicy - if you like spicier - add more sriracha! The spiciness of this dish is dictated by the spiciness of the sriracha (how much you add).
- Onions - you can substitute red onions for the green onions
- Carrots - you can grate them (use fresh or frozen - see Top Tip) or use matchstick carrots
- Oil- you could use sesame oil, canola oil or another type of oil besides olive oil
- Sweetener -if you don't have honey, you can substitute agave (use half the amount) or maple syrup (use the same amount)
I shred a lot of carrots at once in my food processor (affiliate link). If you have a 13+ cup food processor, you can shred a 2 lb bag of carrots at one time without emptying the bowl. Then I freeze them in 2 cup bags. When I go to make this these sriracha chicken lettuce wraps (I always double it because my family loves it that much) I just defrost the carrots in the microwave, drain them and throw them in! I use the rest of the frozen shredded carrots for my Healthy Carrot Bread, Award-Winning Creamy Carrot Soup and Healthy Carrot Muffins with Pineapple.
- The chicken can be stored with the sauce in and airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Keep the noodles and lettuce stored in a separate containers in the fridge. * You can store the noodles for a short time in the sauce, but after 24 hours they absorb the sauce and swell up.
- This chicken noodle mixture freezes well for up to 3 months, if you freeze it shortly after making it (before the noodles absorb the sauce and swell).

This sounds really good, I'm going to try it
Hope you like it - we love it!
I changed this recipe up just a little and used Sweet Thai Chili sauce instead.....it was fantastic. I think the only thing I would change when I'm making it next time is to add the carrots later so they keep a bit of the crisp and I would bake the chicken to get it just a little crispy. Great recipe though. Quick easy dinner, just the way I like it.
Thanks, Lisa! Great idea for those that prefer it a little crispier!
I have made these twice now exactly as the recipe states and my family loves them!!!
Glad you guys loved them, Sheila! They are on regular rotation around here too 🙂
