Stir-fried chicken, walnuts and vegetables in lettuce puffs is one of my favorite dishes in a Chinese restaurant. Sweet Hoisin sauce spooned over crisp cool lettuce and then topped with warm chicken and vegetables combines to create a taste and texture sensation.
I often find cooking in a wok at home doesn’t produce the same results as when food is prepared in a Chinese restaurant. I asked Martin Yan of “Yan Can Cook” fame for some tips. He told me the No. 1 rule: Don’t overcrowd the wok. Cook small portions and cut the ingredients into small pieces. Otherwise, the food will steam in the wok.
Hoisin sauce and oyster flavored sauce can be found in most supermarkets.
