P.F Chang's Lettuce Wrap Makeover

I love P.F Chang's Lettuce Wrap.. but who does not right?

Everyone I know who has had their wraps are absolutely in love with it- I don't blame them!

It simple, flavorful, and makes a great starter...

No, this is not from P.F Chang..in case you are wondering..It's from my kitchen! I wanted to create something similar to P. F's wrap - used whatever ingredients I had at home...It turned out pretty delicious, actually little more delicious than it looks - not gonna lie :) 

There are several versions of P.F's recipe on the internet..I adjusted the ingredients and played around with flavors based on my preference. It's an easy appetizer, great for parties, and even picky eaters will enjoy them!

Flavorful chicken, either ground or chopped chicken breast is a MUST. I used a lot of Asian flavorings (recipe to follow). You can make it ahead, store it properly and heat it right before serving..

Special Sauce enhanced the flavor of wrap altogether. Go here for the recipe. I would make this in advance before cooking the chicken.
Adding Mandarin Orange was just my idea and I think it worked very well with spicy chicken and gave slight sweetness..

You can either assemble them into wraps, given you are not clumsy or messy eater like me

OR,  tear the lettuce leaves, pick up the chicken, add a slice or two of oranges and drizzle sauce over it...
