spicy chicken in lettuce

Top Review by PalatablePastime

These had an excellent flavor, very close to that of the restaurant's. There was plenty of sauces, especially the stir-fry sauce- if someone were to double this recipe I would say they wouldn't really need to double the sauces. Also the time it took to prepare these was a bit longer than stated, but well worth the wait! Thanks for a great recipe!
