Directions

Stir 1 tbsp soy sauce, orange juice, ginger, and 2 tsp brown sugar together in a bowl. Add chicken, ½ cup chopped water chestnuts, mushrooms, onion, and toss to coat. Pat mixture down, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

Whisk chicken stock, rice wine vinegar, garlic, ketchup, 1 tbsp soy sauce, sesame oil, Sweet Honey Wine, 2 tsp brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and dry mustard together in a bowl to use as a sauce.

Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over high heat. Cook and stir chicken mixture in hot oil until chicken is no longer raw, about 2 minutes. Pour 1/2 of the sauce mixture into chicken; cook and stir over high heat until chicken begins to caramelize and brown, 7 to 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium-low, pour remaining sauce into chicken mixture, and cook until heated through and slightly reduced, about 3 minutes more. Stir in cilantro, basil, and green onion. Transfer chicken mixture to a bowl, garnish with radish and serve with sweet chili sauce and lettuce leaves to wrap.
