Preparation

1. Marinate minced chicken in the soy sauce and sweet chili sauce (overnight would be best).

2. Heat a 10 to 12 inch skillet or wok with sesame oil over high heat until shimmering, add chicken and stir-fry until chicken has a nice sear and reaches a temperature of 165 or greater and no pink remains.

3. Transfer cooked chicken and spread out in a large pan to cool (a cookie pan for example)

4. Combine remaining ingredients (except for the butter lettuce leaves) and combine thoroughly; add cooled chicken to fruit mixture at marinate for 12-24 hours.

To assemble, place two lettuce leaves on top of each other and spoon a heaping tablespoon of mixture in the middle of the lettuce (being sure to not add too much juice to the wrap), repeat.
