Mr Chow is one of my kids favorite restaurant, and they especially love this dish. Since we are locked down in quarantine again thought I would google the recipe and make it for them!! The result was pretty close to the real deal!


  • 1lb of ground chicken
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 cup of shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 cup of cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 cup of carrots
  • 1/4 cup of hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp of rice vinegar
  • 2 scallions
  • 1 tbsp of sesame oil
  • 2-3 tbsp of avocado oil
  • 12-15 leaves of lettuce to serve


Wash and dry the lettuce leaves.

Heat up half of the oil and cook the chicken breaking it into small pieces.

One at a time place the carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, ginger and garlic in a  food processor and pulse until rice size shaped.

Once the chicken is cooked transfer to a bowl and cover. Using the same pan add the rest of the oil and start by sautéing the garlic and ginger for 2-3 minutes. Add the riced veggies and toss for 5-6 minuets until they start to soften. Combine with the chicken and the seasoning and simmer for a couple more minutes.

When ready serve on rice or alongside the lettuce leaves and use them as cups, you can add more hoisin sauce (we do) because it is delicious!
