Lettuce Wraps

Everyone in our family likes these! They can be messy, so you could easily just make these into a salad instead. Great for making ahead. Easy. I am giving a rough estimate of amounts. Add ingredients in proportions that suit your tastes.
1 head iceberg lettuce
1 pound cooked chicken, diced
1 can water chestnuts, diced
4 stalks lettuce, diced
1/4 cup red or green onion, diced
5 T fresh grated ginger
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
1/8 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/8 cup soy sauce or tamari (naturally brewed soy sauce)or bragg's
1/8 cup hoisin sauce
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Rinse and pull lettuce apart into individual serving sizes. Put everything else into a large bowl and toss well. Serve chicken mixture in lettuce leaves, roll or fold, and enjoy. We like it with a side of mango slices or pineapple. If you want to stretch this meal, you could add rice to the chicken mixture or serve it on the side.
