1 tbsp EACH soy sauce and oyster sauce
2 tbsps EACH lime juice and water
1/2 tsp hot chili paste
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsps grated ginger root
1 tsp sesame oil

Preparation

Put chicken in a resealable plastic bag.  Combine soy sauce, lime juice, water, oyster sauce, chili paste, garlic, ginger and sesame oil; pour over chicken.  Close bag and refrigerate overnight.

Remove chicken from the marinade; discard marinade.  Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat, cook chicken for 5-7 minutes per side or until a thermometer inserted into the meat reads 170F.  Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes.  Slice chicken diagonally into thin strips and arrange on a warm platter with onions, carrot, red pepper, cucumber, basil/cilantro/mint, and lettuce.

Each person makes their own rolls by spooning hoisin sauce on a lettuce leaf and topping it with chicken, vegetables and basil/cilantro/mint.  Roll the lettuce around the filling like a tortilla.  Dip in hoisin sauce, peanut sauce or Thai dipping sauce and eat rolls with your hands.
