    Here's one from Southern Living. I haven't tried it, but it sounds good. I would probably use a little less red pepper though. 1/2 teaspoon sounds like a lot to me. If you try it, let me know if it's any good. [​IMG]

    THAI LETTUCE FOLDS

    2 tablespoons peanut oil
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    4 skinned and boned chicken breast halves, cut into 1/4 -inch cubes
    1/3 cup chicken broth
    2 green onions with tops, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
    1 tablespoon lime juice
    1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    16 Bibb lettuce leaves
    1/2 pound fresh bean sprouts
    Cucumber Dipping Sauce

    1. Heat peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 1 minute. Add garlic and chicken; cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add broth, and cook over medium heat until most of liquid evaporates. Remove from heat. Stir in green onions and next 5 ingredients.

    2. Spoon 2 tablespoons chicken mixture onto each lettuce leaf; sprinkle with bean spouts, and fold over. Serve with Cucumber Dipping Sauce. Yield: 16 appetizer servings.

    CUCUMBER DIPPING SAUCE

    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
    1 tablespoon plum sauce
    1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves

    Combine first 6 ingredients in a small saucepan.

    Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool.

    Stir in cucumber, cilantro, and mint. Yield: about 1 cup.
