PF chang’s lettuce wraps

last night i was assigned kitchen duty for the night. and as my family would hopefully agree, it was a huge success. my family and i are obsessed with PF Changs. we go every time we go to the states & this at-home recipe for our favorite dish is perfect. It is a lighter take on the original, and can be perfected to taste! enjoy!

what you will need:
– 1lb ground chicken breast (we used lean ground turkey)
– 1/2 medium onion, minced   – salt & pepper, a dash of each
– 2 large cloves garlic, minced  – 1 tablespoon sesame oil
– 1 inch knob fresh ginger, peeled & minced  –  1/2 Tablespoon honey
–  2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce   – 1/2 tablespoon water   –  1 tablespoon  peanut butter
–  1 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon rice vinegar   – dash of fresh pepper
–   2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce (we like a kick, & used 3)
–   3 green onions, chopped  – 1/2-8oz can sliced water chestnuts, drained & chopped
–  1/4 cup peanuts, chopped – outer lettuce leaves, rinsed and patted dry

Directions:
1 – heat a large, non-stick skillet on high. add chicken, onion, salt & pepper, and cook until chicken is nearly done, stirring often. add in minced garlic and ginger, and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink
2 – meanwhile, in a microwave safe bowl, combine sesame oil, soy sauce, water, peanut butter, honey, rice vinegar, chili garlic sauce and pepper. microwave for 40 seconds, then stir until smooth. add into the skillet and stir to combine
3 – add green onion and water chestnuts into the skillet & cook for 1-2 minutes until the onions are soft and the water chestnuts are heated through
4 – sprinkle with chopped peanuts, and serve with cold lettuce leaves on the side
