For the Spicy Dipping Sauces:

  • If using dry mushrooms, place mushrooms in hot water to soften for a few minutes, then remove stems and chop fine.

  • For fresh mushrooms, wash and pat dry then remove stems and chop fine.

  • Combine soy sauce, oyster sauce, 1/2 tsp sesame oil, rice wine, sugar, and pepper in a bowl.

  • Combine ground chicken (I put the chicken in the food processor), softened mushrooms, and water chestnuts into a bowl, then pour over the chicken, toss, and let marinate for 15 minutes.

  • Mix Spicy Hoisin Dipping Sauce ingredients in another bowl, then set aside.

  • Heat the remaining sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Add garlic, then cook until golden, about 10 seconds, and add chicken mixture, then stir fry until browned, breaking the chicken up as it cooks, cook for about 4 to 5 minutes.

  • To serve, spoon 1/4 cup of the chicken into each lettuce leaf, then garnish with scallions.

  • Set a bowl and a little spoon for Spicy Hoisin Dipping Sauce on the table for your optional topping. Enjoy!
