Ground Chicken And Butternut Squash Lettuce Wraps Recipe


  • 175g chicken breast, ground
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • ½ cup frozen green peas
  • 150g butternut squash, cut into tiny cubes and steamed
  • 1 tsp red miso paste
  • 1 tsp water
  • ½ tsp sambal oelek
  • Boston or Iceberg lettuce leaves (8-10)


  1. Steam the butternut squash in a steaming basket over simmering water until fork tender, about 4-5 minutes. Make sure that it retains a little bit of a bite, you don’t want it to turn mushy on you when you mix it in with the chicken.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium non-stick pan, cook the ground chicken breast with the salt and pepper until it turns completely opaque and begins to brown; Stir in frozen peas.
  3. Dilute the miso paste in the water, stir in sambal oelek. Add that to the cooked chicken and mix until well combined. Delicately stir in steamed squash.
  4. Transfer to serving bowl and serve with fresh lettuce leaves.
  5. Spoon a little bit of chicken mixture onto a lettuce leaf, roll (as best you can) into a wrap and enjoy!
  6. Repeat until you sadly run out of chicken mixture.
