This was a great recipe! I used ground chicken, like some of the other reviewers. I browned it and then added the water chestnuts (which I chopped) and broccoli slaw (instead of cabbage). After cooking a few minutes, I added the sauce, and heated it through. I decided to leave out the red pepper (for my 7 y.o. who loved the recipe). Instead, I made a side sauce of soy sauce, rice vinegar, and chinese hot mustard. It was delicious....and I will definitely make it again!!
Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Sweet and Spicy Sauce
You can serve these casual wraps buffet style. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a large platter, spoon the chicken salad in a bowl, and place the sauce in a small bowl on the side. Let people assemble their own Asian-inspired wraps since this is one less step for the cook.
