A quick vinegar soak keeps the chicken moist and intensely flavorful in this light dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil; cook 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in carrot; let stand 10 minutes to soften. Add chicken to carrot mixture; let stand 5 minutes. Drain and discard liquid.

Step 2

Place about 1/4 cup chicken mixture in each lettuce leaf, and top each lettuce leaf with 2 cucumber slices, 1 1/2 teaspoons peanuts, and 1 teaspoon mint.
