  • 1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 6 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, diced
  • 1/3 cup diced carrot
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup diced sugar snap peas
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced peeled ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup mung bean sprouts, halved
  • 1/2 cup sliced shiitake mushroom caps

Method

Step 1

Make the sauce: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Stir again just before using. 

Step 2

Prepare the cups: Heat 2 tablespoons canola oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the chicken and stir-fry until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add the carrot, celery, bell pepper, peas and red onion and stir-fry about 3 minutes. Add the ginger, garlic, sprouts and shiitakes. Add 1/4 cup of the prepared sauce and cook until thickened, about 30 seconds, scraping up any browned bits. Transfer the stir-fry to a bowl; top with the scallions and peanuts. 

Step 3

Wipe out the skillet. Heat the remaining 4 tablespoons canola oil over high heat. Fry the wontons until golden and crisp, about 15 seconds per side. Transfer to paper towels and season with salt. 

Step 4

Fill the lettuce leaves with the stir-fry. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Crumble the wontons on top or serve alongside. Serve with the remaining sauce.
