This is a pared-down version of san choy bau that is really easy to make but still very tasty. I like to serve mine with sesame noodles (one of my gf's favorites).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan. Add chicken and garlic and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, making sure to use a wooden spoon to break up any lumpy bits that form.
  2. Reduce the heat and drain any excess liquid, then add all of the remaining ingredients except the lettuce leaves.
  3. Trim the lettuce leaves to form a cup shape and divide the chicken mixture among them. Top with additional oyster sauce, to taste, if desired, and serve hot (with rice or, ideally, sesame noodles).
