I love take out – I really really do, but I’ve found a recipe that tastes so great that we don’t need to go out for great Chinese food. (BUT don’t tell my husband.  I’d rather go out  – no prep and no dishes!)

This is a pretty darn good copy cat recipe of the Chicken Lettuce Wraps from P.F. Changs.  I got the recipe HERE on Food.com (thanks Lali), but I’ve modified it for our personal tastes.

I chopped up a nice Vidalia onion, some mushroom, carrots, water chestnuts and cooked chicken breasts.

PF Changs 1

I made a simple stir fry sauce.  Threw it into a non stick pan and added all the ingredients you see above.

I cooked everything over medium heat for about 15 minutes – just long enough to for the onions to sweat a bit, and for the carrots to soften a little. Let me tell you…the aroma was mouth watering.

BAM – it’s done.

PF Changs 2

 Serve on crunchy iceberg lettuce.  YUM!

I used:

  • 1 medium Vidalia Onion
  • About 2 cups of finely chopped carrot
  • About 2 cups of finely chopped mushrooms
  • 3 large chicken breasts that we sauted till all juices ran clear – then finely chopped
  • 2 can  of water chestnuts  that I finely chopped.

Stir Fry Sauce:

  • 7 tbls. soy sauce
  • 6 tbls. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. rice wine vinegar

I head of iceberg lettuce – washed and leaves torn off whole.

I had planned to use 1/3rd for dinner and then freeze the rest – but since I was too tired to make pot stickers, we ate at least half of the recipe.  The other half was eaten the next day with rice and more soy sauce.  I plan on making this recipe again later this week.  I’m going to triple (yes triple), the amount of ingredients that I’ve listed above.  I will freeze several portions. Some for us and some for my husbands admin, who is expecting a baby in October. I’m in the process of putting together a week’s worth of freezer meals for her.
