"Very tasty. I recommend updating the directions though - when it said to "add remaining ingredients" I added all including the sweet/sour items. Still turned out well though. I added water chestnuts - yum"- Lkintner

Bring a large wok up to medium high heat. Add vegetable oil, and saute onions and garlic for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add mushrooms, ground chicken, diced pepper, ginger. Stir fry on high heat for 4-5 minutes or until chicken is completely browned. Drain liquid, then add the remaining ingredients and stir. Bring down to a simmer and/or cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, prepare the sweet/sour sauce to accompany the lettuce wraps. In a small saute pan, add sugar and water, and stir to dissolve. When the sugar is completely dissolved (2-3 minutes), add vinegar, cucumbers and red pepper flakes.

gkoliver 3 months agoWe modified the recipe quite a bit due to diet and pantry limitations :) But the chicken was excellently flavored, and the dish was easy. Thank you!
davezula 6 months agoDelicious. Trying to figure out how to reach the 20minute prep time- food processor? Also, was easy to overcook the veggies, and I'd add the cilantro later. Ginger was very strong.

Clare2 4 years agoReally yummy! Less sugar than the P.F. Changs version too. My husband and I shared it as an entree (no carbs, so you eat a lot of it!) but it would make a great appetizer.
