Ingredients:

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-size chunks
¼ cup bottled light Asian-style dressing with sesame and ginger (divided use)
2 cups julienned carrots (packaged is just fine)
⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 head butter (Boston) lettuce, washed, dried and leaves separated
¼ cup honey-roasted peanuts, chopped 

4 lime wedges

PREPARATION:
1. Sprinkle chicken lightly with salt and pepper. Lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray and preheat over medium-high heat. 

2. Add chicken, stirring for 3 minutes or until browned. 

3. Add 1 tablespoon of the dressing and the carrots to the skillet. Stir and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until carrots are crisp-tender and chicken is no longer pink. Stir in red pepper and transfer chicken mixture to a serving bowl (or divide into 4 bowls). 

4. Arrange 4 stacks of lettuce leaves on a large platter in the center of the table. 

5. Allow each person to fill lettuce leaves with chicken mixture, topped with a sprinkle of nuts. Add remaining dressing and squeezes from the lime wedges to taste.
