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.

We 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!

Delicious. 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.

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

Really 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.

This is good. The kids really liked it. I didn't like the sauce though.
