Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps, from Carrie

I made this for dinner the night before last. It only took about 20 minutes to make and was sooooo good!

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

3 Packages (6 oz each) grilled chicken breast strips, Tysons
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh chopped mint
1/4 cup chili sauce, Heinz
2 teaspoons shredded lime zest
1/4 cup lime juice, Real Lime
1 tablespoon of soy sauce, Kikkoman
1 1/2 teaspoon Thai seasoning, Spice Islands
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 head of Boston or Bibb lettuce, separated into leaves

1. In food processor fitted with a metal blade (or a blender using pulse mode in very small batches) combine chicken strips, cilantro, red onion, and chopped mint. Pulse until coarsely minced.

2. Transfer chicken mixture to a medium bowl. Stir in chili sauce, lime zest, lime juice, Thai seasoning, and garlic.

3. Serve with lettuce leaves for cup or wrappers. Garnish with fresh mint or cilantro sprig (optional)
