With the use of ground chicken and pre-diced water chestnuts, most of the work is done for you. We have made lettuce wraps by dicing our own chicken and I promise using ground chicken is way easier.

Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

Add ground chicken and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the chicken as it cooks; drain excess fat.

Stir in garlic, onion, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, and Sriracha until onions become translucent, about 1-2 minutes.

Stir in chestnuts and green onions until tender, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
