“This recipe packs so much flavor into a beautiful, healthy presentation. I love to serve it as an hors d’oeuvre or as the main dish when I have folks over. It’s always a hit! I usually serve it with a little extra hoisin on the side.” —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina

MY REVIEW

Very good but much, much better with boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Much more flavorful.

I loved this recipe. The whole family enjoyed it. I could not find Bibb lettuce leaves so we simply used wheat tortillas. I added more carrots and snow peas than the recipe called for, and I thought it tasted great. No need to add more sauce. VERY FLAVORFUL!

These are so delicious!!! I try to make them whenever I can. I double the recipe and freeze the leftovers, and they are just as delicious unfrozen as fresh! Most times I don't even use lettuce, just sprinkle some rice noodles on top and it is so good. This is a five star plus recipe!
