To make plum sauce: combine all ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce and simmer 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then transfer to a blender and blend until smooth, adding a tablespoon or two of water to thin, if necessary. Transfer to a jar until ready to use. For chicken, chop the chicken into cubes. Heat 1 tbspp. vegetable oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook five minutes per side until cooked through. Remove to a plate. Whisk together plum sauce, soy sauce, ginger and garlic and set aside. Add the red pepper and cook until softened. Once softened, add eggplant and cook until browned. Add the chicken back to the pan and toss to combine. Pour the sauce on top and toss to coat. Remove the pan and place the chicken mixture into a bowl. To serve, place a heaping spoonful on a lettuce leave and top with additional plum sauce.
