  1. Peel and finely chop ginger. Rinse waterchestnuts and coarsely chop. Coarsely chop scallions. Cut chicken breasts into 1/2-inch pieces.
  2. Heat a wok or a 12-inch heavy skillet (not nonstick) over moderately high heat until just smoking, then add oil. Add ginger, salt, and 2 tablespoons scallions and stir-fry until ginger is fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add chicken and stir-fry until just cooked through, about 2 minutes. Add water chestnuts, hoisin sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and pine nuts and stir-fry until heated through, about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons scallions.
  3. Have guests serve themselves by spooning chicken mixture into lettuce leaves and wrapping leaves around filling to enclose.
