 Directions

Sauce: 

Place the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil in a small bowl and whisk. 

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a pan and heat over medium heat until shimmering. Add the ground turkey and cook through, breaking up the clumps, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer the turkey to a bowl and put to the aside.

Put the remaining 1 teaspoon oil into the pan. Add carrots, cook 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the water chestnuts, ginger, and garlic, cook for about about 30 seconds, stir in pepper and sriracha.

Add the turkey to the pan and add 1/2 of the scallions and the sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is warmed through 30 to 60 seconds. 

With care break off the lettuce leaves and pile them on a plate. To serve, place a generous spoonful of chicken mixture in the middle of a lettuce leaf, top with scallions and red pepper flakes or hot sauce.
