Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I love the chicken lettuce wraps from P.F. Chang’s and this recipe is a scrumptious comparable to the finger licking appetizer.  You can make a meal of it by adding a vegetable medley on the side or rice and black beans.  I made a few healthy adjustments that don’t interfere at all with the flavorful dish. The sauce is so delicious, you will want to make extra to have for drizzling on salads and vegetables.
