"These are so yummy! They taste really close to the lettuce wraps that you can order from that famous Asian restaurant chain. The number of servings will depend on if this is an appetizer or main course for you and how big you make them. If an appetizer, then maybe 6 servings; if a main dish, then 4 servings." — tierncooks

1 1/2 pounds
red bell pepper, cut into large dice
rice wine vinegar, or more to taste
grated fresh ginger
hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®)
Asian (toasted) sesame oil
chunky peanut butter
large leaves of iceberg lettuce
chopped green onion, or to taste
chopped fresh cilantro
Very good, I choose to add the peanut butter and l/3 cup of unsalted peanuts directly into the chicken mixture. With heat on low, melted the peanut butter and then removed from heat and served sprinkling the green onions and grated carrots on top.
Too salty. Definitely use a low-sodium soy sauce. I also found the peanut sauce lacking. Although we did eat them all, I would change things up next time.
We made this for our Grey Cup Party and it was a huge hit! The spice level is very pleasing for everyone but if it was just my husband and I eating it I would definitely make it much more spicy.
Loved this recipe. I used romaine lettuce and green pepper instead of red, but I doubt that made that much of a difference. Definitely liked the dipping sauce directly on top of the chicken mixture. Will make again!
We (my husband and I) absolutely love this recipe. Now that i have made it a few times, I have done it with ground chicken, leftover cut up chicken from a whole smoked chicken we cooked on out smoker, and also vegetarian because our neighbor is a vegetarian, and all variations were very good. Even the vegetarian way. We like this best with the ground chicken, and when making the peanut butter sauce, we use Adams all natural chunky PB, and add much more hot water than it calls for. I also add a little bit of sesame oil and sriracha sauce to give it a little kick. I don't use the recommended amount of soy sauce in it, either - I use way less(in the pb sauce and in the meat mixture both)because alot of people said it was too salty in the reviews. I will definitely continue to make this
This was a decent recipe, I really liked the sauce that goes on the chicken thought the peanut dipping sauce was a good complement to it. Next time I think I will throw in some bean sprouts and water chestnuts with it.
