"These wraps are as close as I can come to PF Chang's Asian Bistro. They get rave reviews wherever I take them and folks swear they taste just as good as or better than PF Changs. You can substitute 1 1/4 lb. ground pork for the chicken. Please don't be intimidated by the list of ingredients or the long instuctions. They are actually very easy to make and come together quickly but you must prep ingredients in advance. These are great for company, as you can make all the sauces in advance and then just cook the meat right before eating."

These were amazingly delicious...but they are time consuming...I tend to gather all my ingredients and return them after using...so...I was gathering the same ingredients over and over again...I did cut the recipe in half...it made the perfect amount for two people...we loved the flavors...I think next time I will omit the rice noodles...made for "First Time" tag game...
