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 Sauce: 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
