Dipping Sauces:


  • Combine teriyaki sauce, chili sauce, soy sauce, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a bowl.
  • Mix well and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. When oil is hot, add chicken.
  • Season chicken lightly with salt and pepper. When chicken is white on all sides (doesn't need to be completely cooked through), remove chicken from skillet and set aside on a plate. Discard any extra juices.
  • In the same skillet, heat 2 Tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, water chestnuts, pinenuts, and mushrooms and saute for about 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in about 1/2 of the teriyaki mixture and chicken to the skillet. Cook uncovered, for about 7-8 minutes, stirring often until chicken is cooked through. Serve with butter lettuce.

For the dipping sauces:

  • Heat remaining teriyaki sauce in a small sauce pan. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and divide into 2 small bowls (one for spicy teriyaki sauce, one for peanut sauce).
  • In one bowl, add about 1/4 tsp. Sriracha sauce (or more to taste) and mix well.
  • In the other bowl, add 1-2 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter (or to taste), mix until creamy and smooth.
