  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch 

  • 2 teaspoons Sherry wine or red wine
2 teaspoons water 

  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce

Filling Ingredients for Lettuce Wraps

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
5 tablespoons vegetable oil or peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup minced green onions
1 cup minced shiitake mushrooms
  • 8 ounces minced bamboo shoots
  • 8 ounces minced water chestnuts
  • 6 ounces Chinese cellophane noodles

Cooking Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon Soy sauce 

  • 1 tablespoon Sherry wine or red wine 

  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce 

  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil 

  • 1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce s, washed and taken off the head but left whole


  • Mix all ingredients for "cooking sauce" and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine marinade ingredients and mix well. Add chicken and stir to coat thoroughly. 
  • Stir in 1 teaspoon oil and let sit for 15 minutes. Heat wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Chop chicken into small pieces. Add 3 tablespoons oil, then add chicken and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes. Set aside. Add 2 tablespoons oil to the pan. 
  • Add ginger, garlic, and onion and stir-fry for a minute or so. Add mushrooms, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts stir-fry an additional 2 minutes. Return chicken to the pan. Add mixed cooking sauce to the pan. 
  • Cook until thickened and hot. Break cooked cellophane noodles into small pieces and cover bottom of serving the dish with them. Then pour chicken mixture on top of noodles. Serve alongside lettuce leaves, allowing everyone to take what they want, and then spoon into lettuce leaf and roll (like a burrito) individually. Thanks to MarcyG76 for sharing this recipe.
