Ingredients

Directions

Heat the chicken according to the package instructions. Let cool slightly, then cut into medium dice.

Whisk together the lime juice, vegetable oil, sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken, rice cakes, cilantro, mint, peanuts, scallions, carrot, cucumber and bell pepper and toss well to coat. 

Lay 12 of the lettuce leaves on a serving platter and double up each with one of the remaining leaves. Divide the chicken salad among the lettuce cups and top with some chili-garlic sauce, the sesame seeds and a squeeze of lime.
