I’ve had plenty of versions of lettuce wraps, and they all seem to end up on my lap or running down my arms. The easiest solution is to use baby romaine lettuce as the “cup” – not only do you benefit from the added nutrition, the crunchy baby romaine tends to keep its shape and not fall apart.

Wash and separate baby romaine leaves, carefully keeping each leaf whole. In a bowl, combine chicken, water chestnuts, shiitake mushroom, dressing, peanuts, and green onion and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and black pepper. Spoon a rounded tablespoon of the mixture into each lettuce cup and top with a sprinkle of the fried shallot.
