Ramen noodles:

Whisk all ingredients together in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, whisking until well combined. Reduce heat to simmer. Simmer, uncovered, 5 min. or until slightly thickened. Cover and store in refrigerator up to 2 days.

When ready to serve:

Toss together noodles, chicken, carrots, snow peas, bean sprouts, green onion and water chestnuts.

Divide lettuce among serving plates. Top with noodle mixture and drizzle with peanut sauce. Garnish with peanuts and cilantro, if desired
