16 Boston, bibb or butter lettuce leaves 1 pound ground chicken breast 1 large onion, chopped 2 tablespoons minced garlic 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce 1/4 cup hoisin sauce 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or red wine vinegar 2 teaspoons Asian chili pepper sauce (see Note) 1 can (8 ounce size) sliced water chestnuts, drained, finely chopped 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced 2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil
Rinse lettuce leaves, keeping them whole. Set aside to drain.
Cook chicken in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring often to break up the meat. Add onion, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar and chili sauce. Cook until the meat is crumbled and brown. Add water chestnuts and green onions. Cook until onions begin to wilt, about 2 minutes.
Stir in sesame oil. Arrange lettuce leaves on the outer edge of a platter. Spoon meat mixture in center. Allow diners to spoon meat mixture into lettuce leaves and eat like a taco.
Asian chili pepper sauce can be found in the Asian section of most supermarkets. Some brands contain garlic, which is fine. You can use 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1/2 teaspoon dried red chili flakes instead.
My favorite appetizer is TGI Friday's pot stickers! So I was skeptical about these tasting just like them, but they really do!! They were wonderful! They make a lot, but it's easy to freeze them and just thaw and brown them whenever you are in the mood for them. -GIRLYMOMOF4
I love this recipe When I first tried it from Panda express I fell in love it is now my favorite meal. -AK123

The mumg bean noodles are as stiff and hard to cut. Use a sharp scissors. Punt s9me veg. oil in a pan ( use a wok) about approx. 2 inches deep. Get hot than drop the noodles into the oil. They will puff up very quickly. Remove and drain on paper towel. Good luck.

I used soy crumbles instead of the chicken. Had to adjust the cooking method a little but it turned out decent!

I've started making the filling and bringing it to work and just assembling it on lettuce leaves there. Super easy and so good! My coworker thought I went to PFChangs on my break!!

Made this with ground turkey because my store almost never has ground chicken. Turned out just as good!

This dish is the reason I love PFChangs but I can't get there very often. I love that I can make it at home (I'll still go to the restaurant every chance I get though because we all deserve a good meal out once in a while!). I don't change anything with this recipe and it turns out vry good. I've made it three times now!

I made these, but just cut the chicken in small chunks, also added about 2 TBSP of fresh cilantro, and a few TBSP of brown sugar and about 1 TSP of Garlic Salt and 1/4 cup of crushed almonds for some more crunch, these were absolutely delicious and would recommend to anyone!

Very good and simple! I added diced carrots and cashews and was heavy-handed with the Sriracha!!
This is a keeper!
