Changs Style Lettuce Wraps

At the request of many on Facebook today, I am posting the recipe for my Lettuce Wraps. They taste just like PF Changs and are so yummy!!!

Special Sauce:
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Ketchup
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1/8 teas. sesame seed oil

Chinese Hot Mustard
Chili Garlic Sauce

Mix sugar, water, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ketchup, lemon juice, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Refrigerate until you're ready to serve the lettuce wraps. You will add desired amount of Hot Mustard and Chili sauce then. Add a little at a time so you don't get it too spicy.

Stir Fry Sauce:
2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 teas. rice vinegar

Mix together in small bowl then set aside for chicken mixture.

Chicken Mixture:
4 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
4 Tbsp. Chopped green onion
1 cup water chestnuts (chopped)
1/2 cup peanuts (chopped)
1 teas. minced garlic

1 cup fried Maifun Rice sticks (follow package directions for frying)
4-5 iceberg lettuce cups
1/2 carrot shredded

Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in wok or skillet. Cook chicken breasts until done, remove from pan to cool. When you can handle the chicken, cut it into small pieces. Add remaining oil to pan and heat then add chicken, water chestnuts, green onion, peanuts, stir fry sauce (previously set aside)and garlic. Saute for a couple of minutes then spoon into a bed of rice noodles and shredded carrots.

To serve:
Remove special sauce from fridge. I use small sauce bowls and let people mix up their own sauce. I pour about 1/8 cup of special sauce in to the bowl and let others add their own hot mustard and chili sauce according to their own taste.

Spoon a bit of chicken mixture including rice noodles and carrots onto your lettuce leaf, sprinkle with sauce and roll up in the lettuce like a burrito.
