Place pheasant legs and vegetables into a large, well-greased roasting pan. Spray pan spray over everything to help browning. Place into a 375 €“ 400 degree oven for 1 hour. Turn contents of pan every 30 minutes while roasting. Add chicken broth and continue roasting until everything is medium-brown and meat can be pulled easily off of the bone. Allow to cool. Pull meat from bones and shred or chop into small pieces.
In a hot wok or large skillet over medium-high heat, add pheasant and next 4 ingredients. Stir-fry for 2 €“ 3 minutes. Stir in chicken broth and cook 2 €“ 3 minutes more.
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
Arrange all items on a tray or platter. Everyone makes their own lettuce wrap.

1. Place contents of wok in a bowl with a spoon. Place dipping sauce ina small bowl with a spoon.
2. Grab a lettuce leaf, hold in the palm of your hand and spoon some pheasant mixture into the lettuce leaf. Spoon some of the dipping sauce over. Add condiments as desired. Top with a dollop of hot sauce.
3. Roll mixture up carefully in your hand, folding the bottom edge over to keep most of the stuffing from falling out. Keep in mind that lettuce wraps can be a little messy, but they€™re great!
