Make

  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add oil and then carrots and mushrooms. Saute until tender, ~3 minutes.
  2. Add in white parts of green onions, garlic, and cabbage with a pinch of salt.
  3. Push all the vegetables to the side, forming a hole in the middle (like a donut). Place chicken in the donut hole. Give your sauce a stir, and then pour it over the chicken.
  4. Once sauce starts to bubble and darken, toss to mix. Continue to stir-fry until chicken is cooked through (since the chicken has been sliced into thin strips, this shouldn't take more than another 4 to 5 minutes).
  5. Let everyone assemble their own mushu lettuce wraps by topping lettuce leaves with filling. Finish them with Sriracha and green parts of green onion. Enjoy!
