Wonderful! I cut the recipe down for DH and I and used ground chicken but other than that I followed the directions. Oh so yummy! Next time I might use butter lettuce because it is easier to separate and roll but there definately will be a next time. Made for Spring Pick a Chef 2011.

I used to work at Joey's and this was one of my favourite dishes! I rarely find "copycat" recipes that are close to the original but this one is IDENTICAL! I only used half of the chili sauce and it was still really spicy so i would only use 1/4 Tbsp next time.

these are so perfect, I had them at Joey Tomatoe's in Vancouver on Sunday and made them from this recipe on Tuesday and they were identical. Outstanding flavours and so yummy. I will make again and again.

I omitted the noodles and the peppers and added shredded carrots, shredded ginger and bean sprouts. Also had raw shredded cabagge that folks could add for crunch since I skipped the noodles. Made recipe first as vegetarian, took a portion out for a friend and then added browned crumbled turkey to the rest. Big hit at football party and much appreciated as lighter fare post holidays!

I have used ground chicken to save time. Siracha sauce with the brown sugar or a sweet chinese chili sauce. I also chop the chestnuts finely, easier then slivered. Peanuts make it a bit more difficult to roll the lettuce as they tend to fall out unless crushed. They will dominate the flavor. I use occassionally just for variety. auntie
