  1. Step 1

    Heat a large heavy non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, breaking up chicken with a wooden spoon, for 4 mins or until just cooked through. Transfer to a heatproof bowl.
  2. Step 2

    Return pan to heat. Add the oil, onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 min or until onion begins to soften. Stir in celery and cook, stirring often, for 3 mins or until vegetables are slightly tender.
  3. Step 3

    Stir in the hoisin sauce. Return the chicken to the pan and cook for 30 secs to blend flavours. Stir in the cabbage, carrot and half the spring onions and season with pepper. Remove pan from heat.
  4. Step 4

    Carefully separate lettuce leaves to get 16 neat cups, trimming as needed. Arrange lettuce leaves on 4 plates. Spoon chicken mixture into each leaf and garnish with remaining spring onions and coriander.
