Copy Cat PF Changs Lettuce Wraps

I don't think these tasted exactly like the lettuce wraps that they serve at P.F. Chang's, they definitely don't look like them, and we didn't have the little noodles, but they were really tasty!!  John really loved them, and really it's a pretty healthy dish. 
The food processor should be your friend if you are going to make this.  I diced everything using the food processor.  After I cooked the chicken, I put it in the food processor too instead of dicing it into small pieces. 
Copy Cat P.F. Chang's Lettuce Wrap Recipe
Recipe from HERE 
3 tablespoons oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup water chestnut
2/3 cup mushroom
3 tablespoons chopped onions
1 teaspoon minced garlic
4 -5 leaves iceberg lettuce
Special Sauce:
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water + 2 tsp.
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon spicy mustard
1 -2 teaspoon garlic and red chile paste
Stir Fry Sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar

1.  Make the special sauce by dissolving the sugar in water in a small bowl and adding other ingredients.  Put in refrigerator until ready to serve.
2.  Bring oil to high heat in a wok or large frying pan. Saute chicken breasts for 4 to 5 minutes per side or done. Remove chicken from the pan and cool. Keep oil in the pan, keep hot.
3.  Mince water chestnuts, mushrooms, onions to about the size of small peas.
4.  Prepare the stir fry sauce by mixing the soy sauce, brown sugar, and rice vinegar together in a small bowl. I actually ended up adding another tablespoon of the soy sauce, brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp. of the rice vinegar because I think the chicken breasts I used were huge and it was a little dry. 
5.  When chicken is cool, mince it to the same size as mushrooms and water chestnuts.
6.  With the pan still on medium high heat, add another Tbsp of oil. Add chicken, garlic, onions, water chestnuts and mushrooms to the pan. Add the stir fry sauce to the pan and saute the mixture for a couple minutes then serve it in the lettuce"cups". Top with Special Sauce.
