    • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced (about 2–3 cloves)
    • 3 Tbsp brown sugar or honey
    • 1/2 c water
    • 1/2 Tbsp fish sauce, click for vegan recipe
    • 2 Tbsp lime juice (or about 4 limes)
    • 1 Tbsp peanut oil or vegetable oil
    • 1 Tbsp ginger, minced
    • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced (about 2u20133 cloves)
    • 12 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
    • 1 Tbsp lite soy sauce
    • 1 Tbsp sesame oil (optional)
    • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds (optional)
    • 1 (small) head red leaf lettuce, rinsed, dried, and separated into single leaves large enough to create wrap
    • 8 fresh basil leaves, whole, rinsed and dried
    • 2 cups bok choy or Asian cabbage, rinsed and shredded

    Directions

    1 To prepare the sauce, add all ingredients to a saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat, and let sit in hot saucepan for 3–5 minutes. Chill in refrigerator for about 15 minutes or until cold.
    2 Prepare the chicken by heating oil in a large wok or sauté pan. Add ginger and garlic, and stir fry briefly until cooked but not brown, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    3 Add chicken, and continue to stir fry for 5–8 minutes.
    4 Add soy sauce, sesame oil (optional), and sesame seeds (optional), and return to a boil. Remove from the heat, and cover with lid to hold warm in hot sauté pan.
    5 Assemble each wrap: Place one large red lettuce leaf on a plate, then add ½ cup chicken stir-fry, 1 basil leaf, and ¼ cup shredded cabbage and fold together. Serve two wraps with ¼ cup sauce.

      this sounded exciting until I tried to read the recipe and directions. They were presented in such an unorganized and confusing way — there should be a clear section for ingredients for sauce and those for chicken, the directions are obviously written for a more experienced cooks. I hope you will consider making a few changes in your layout and verbiage as I am sure that the final recipe will result in a delicious dish. I actually could help you if you want my professional suggestions
