Chicken Lettuce Wraps


I miss PF Changs.  The closest one to me is about 45 miles from here and its a little bit out-of-the-way.  I went to the farmer’s market on Saturday and saw these huge heads of lettuce and they reminded me of the lettuce wraps I dearly love from there. 

Tonight I got a little hungry before watching the NBA Finals, and considering tomorrow is grocery day and we don’t have much in the fridge, I came across the lettuce and thought I would work with what I have and make some.

1 package of Tyson pre-cooked chicken (diced)

1 can of water chestnuts (diced)

1/2 container of mushrooms (diced)

 1 tbsp garlic salt

2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Soyaki Sauce

Dice and saute all the ingredients on medium heat for about 5 minutes.  Add a little juice from the water chestnuts to keep it moist.  Add more soyaki sauce if desired.

I made a sauce to pour on it to give it a little more flavor.  It included:

1/4 cup of sugar (dissolved in water)

1/2 cup of water

2 tbsp ketchup

2 tbsp soyaki sauce

1 tbsp mustard

1 tbsp tobasco (to give some kick)

It tasted great!  I would add a little more ketchup or chili sauce to the sauce for consistency, but the mushrooms and water chestnuts hold in so much favor!
