Lettuce Wraps

Sorry everyone I've been so late at getting this recipe to you all. It actually turned out rather well. It was kind of a pain to cut the chicken up so small...I'm looking into finding another way to mince it; and I forgot to make the rice sticks. Overall it's awesome and we'll definitely be making it again! I combined 2 different recipes on sparkrecipes to make this one (don't forget this is a low cal, low fat meal; which makes it even more yummy). Enjoy!
