A Family Favorite. "The Chopper is a great tool for this recipe and will even make mushroom haters love this and not even know they are there" ~ Leah

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Water
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp Ketchup
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1/3 tsp Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp Hot Mustard
2 tsp Water
1 tsp Garlic Red Chili Paste
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/2 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
3 Tbsp Oil
Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
Water Chestnuts
2/3 cup Mushrooms
3 Tbsp Onion, Chopped
1 tsp Garlic, Minced
4-5 Lettuce Leaves


*Make the special sauce by dissolving the sugar in water in small bowl

*Add soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ketchup, lemon juice, and sesame oil

*Mix well and refrigerate sauce until you are ready to serve

*Combine hot water with hot mustard and set this aside as well

*Eventually add your desired measurement of mustard and garlic chile sauce to the special sauce mixture to pour over the wraps

*Bring oil to high heat in a wok or large frying pan; sauté chicken breasts for 4-5 minutes per side or until done; remove chicken from pan and cool

*Keep oil in the pan and keep hot; as chicken cools, mince water chestnuts and mushrooms to about the size of small peas

*Prepare the stir fry sauce by mixing the soy sauce, brown sugar, and rice vinegar together in a small bowl

*When chicken is cool, mince it as the mushrooms; with the pan still on high heat, add another Tbsp of oil

*Add chicken, garlic, onions, water chestnuts, and mushrooms to pan

*Add the stir fry sauce to the pan and sauté the mixture for a couple minutes, then serve it in the lettuce "cups" and top with "special sauce"
