This crispy chicken lettuce wraps use classic Korean ingredients to make a flavorful dipping sauce that takes this meal to the next level. Sake, a Japanese alcoholic beverage, flavors the sauce. Bottles of sake are available in a range of prices, from inexpensive to elite. You can use wax paper for the panko and sesame seed mixture or a shallow dish, like a dinner plate or pie plate, to keep the mixture contained. When you dip the chicken in the egg white mixture, let the excess drain off so that the panko mixture doesn’t get too wet—if it’s too soggy, it won’t crisp up in the oven.
