Chicken Lettuce Wraps

These taste almost identical to PF Changs but are half the work and very low calorie.
I use Yoshida's sauce for a lot of the flavor and the water chestnuts are essential to this recipe or you won't have that wonderful crunch!
 I know there are some who would turn their little foodie noses up at the use of the Yoshida sauce, but I'm telling can mix your soy, ginger, sesame oil, cook, then thicken with cornstarch...or you can crack open a bottle of Yoshidas!  It has a deep rich flavor and on a busy weeknight it is a quick trip to flavor town!
 Keep some leftovers to pack for lunch the next day...with some lettuce leaves on the side this dish travels very well!
