Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Sweet and Spicy Sauce

Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Sweet and Spicy Sauce

You can serve these casual wraps buffet style. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a large platter, spoon the chicken salad in a bowl, and place the sauce in a small bowl on the side. Let people assemble their own Asian-inspired wraps since this is one less step for the cook.
