Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Chicken Lettuce Wraps
2 Tbsp oil
1 lb chicken
1/2 cup diced carrots
8 oz can water chestnuts, drained and diced
1/2 cup minced onions
1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
1 head iceberg or butter lettuce, separated in to rounds

1/4 cup Hoisen sauce
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic

Mix the ingredients for the sauce together in a bowl and set aside.
Cut the chicken into small pieces.  Heat the oil over medium high heat in a large frying pan.
Add the chicken and stir-fry for about 3 minutes or until browned.  Add all the vegetables, 1/2 of the peanuts and the water chestnuts and stir-fry for an additional 2 minutes or until the veggies are cooked tender.

Add the sauce and simmer until everything is hot.  Stir in the remaining peanuts. 
Scoop the mixture onto a lettuce piece fold around and eat.

*I cheated and used can chicken this time and it was perfect. 
I prepped it all the night before.  I think it allowed the flavors to mix well in the sauce.

This was a huge hit at my house and I will be making them again soon!
