I changed this recipe just a bit by adding 1 1/2 cups of cooked rice vermicelli and 1 cup of diced carrots, and also doubled the stir-fry sauce. It turned out tasting exactly like in the restaurants! I think without these add-ins it tastes a little too oily for me.
Great recipe! Only change I would make is to substitute Hoisin sauce for the ketsup. I think you'll get that smokey, rich flavor in the sauce :)
This recipe didn't really taste anything like PF Chang's recipe. It was okay but not like the real thing.
I have made this several times and it is awesome!!! I got lots of compliments from friends. A tip: I started using ground chicken instead of the chicken breast. You don't have to mince it and works nicely for filling the lettuce.
Spot on flavor. We really enjoyed this! It was soupy though and next time I might add a little corn starch at the end. I will also buy the little rice noodles in the store so that it is identical to the restaraunt recipe.
Awesome! I will make this again soon - and will try rice or noodles as an option. Using ground chicken makes it so easy!
These were so good and easy to make. I too made both Chili's and these. They are so close to the same. Can't say which is best. Thanks Lali.
Absolutely delicious! I used ground chicken instead of chicken breast, which avoided the added step of chopping. I also simply diced the water chestnuts and baby bella mushrooms and substituted green onions, which I added to the pan along with the mushrooms and water chestnuts. I used about 1/4 of the "special sauce" in the pan for the last few seconds of stir-frying then used the rest as the topping. Next time I will double the stir fry sauce. My daughter asked if we could eat them again tomorrow night. I guess that is a testimony to how great this recipe is! Beats takeout any day!
To: e.ringwald You wrote, "Not to mention chang's does not even keep ketchup on site! (not authentic Chinese condiment)." You couldn't be more wrong. Ketchup was INVENTED by the Chinese!
YUM! We've done these a few times, and they are great! We add ginger in there somewhere, plus we do extra chicken, chopped carrots, and rice.
