List of Ingredients
4 large Boston lettuce leaves, washed and spun dry
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1/2 skinless boneless chicken breast, chilled (about 6 ounces)
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons dry white wine
1/3 cup canned water chestnuts (about 2 ounces), rinsed, drained and chopped
fine
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped fine
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg white, beaten lightly


For sauce
4 teaspoons oyster sauce
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

Preparation
Brush inside of each lettuce leaf with 1/2 tablespoon hoisin sauce and chill.

In a food processor pulse chicken until chopped fine. In a small cup stir together
cornstarch and wine and in a bowl stir together chicken, cornstarch mixture,
water chestnuts, bell pepper, salt and egg white. Marinate chicken mixture 5
minutes.

Make sauce:
In a small bowl, stir together sauce ingredients until sugar is dissolved.

In a large saucepan with 6 cups salted boiling water cook chicken mixture,
stirring constantly to break up lumps, until chicken is no longer pink, about 3
minutes. Drain chicken mixture in sieve.

In a large non-stick skillet heat vegetable oil over moderately high heat until hot
but not smoking and cook garlic, stirring until softened. Add chicken mixture and
cook, stirring, until golden, about 2 minutes. Add sauce and cook, stirring, until
mixture is coated, about 2 minutes.

Divide chicken mixture among prepared lettuce leaves and sprinkle with pine
nuts. Wrap leaves loosely around filling.

Number of Servings: 2-4
