Cooking Directions

Prepare rice per package directions.

Heat oil in a medium non-stick wok or skillet over medium-high heat.  Add garlic and ginger and sauté 30 seconds.  Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, stirring to break-up any clumps.  Add cooked rice, stir in soy sauce, waterchestnuts, cilantro and sesame oil.  Place about ½ cup mixture into each lettuce leave.  Garnish with a lime wedge and chopped mint.  

Options:  Use light soy sauce to decrease sodium.  Substitute hoisin or teriyaki sauce for the soy sauce.   Use pita halves or tortillas instead of lettuce.  Serve on a bed of spinach or shredded lettuce for a healthy salad entree.
