I used this recipe for P.F. Chang’s Chicken-Lettuce Wraps (click to link original recipe) from Food.com as a basis for my P.F. Changesque Chicken Wraps.
My family really liked this dish. Though they said it was “similar” to P.F. Chang’s, but it was NOT P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps.
Next time I will chunk the chicken in 1″ pieces fry it then put it in the food processor for a few moments to break it down into smaller pieces. It took so long to cut the chicken down into small bits that I really didn’t feel were small enough but were as tiny as I could get them.

Mix all ingredients for the sauce and set aside.
In medium bowl, combine marinade ingredients and mix well. Add chicken and stir to coat thoroughly. Stir in 1 t. oil and let sit for 15 minutes.
Heat wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 3 T. oil, then add chicken and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes until cooked through. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
Add 2 T. oil to the pan if needed. Add garlic, and onion and stir-fry for a minute or so until fragrant. Add mushrooms 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. Serve along side lettuce leaves for everyone to take what they want. Spoon chicken mixture into lettuce leaf and roll (like a burrito) individually. Add fried rice noodles to top if desired.
