Yum and double yum! I cut the recipe in half and did cut the chicken into thin strips and marinated 5 hours which was tasty and perfect, think 24 hours would have been too long for these thin strips and just as a matter of personal choice will cut the strips into thirds next time. Had some homemade sweet chili sauce left from yesterday that did not have ginger so add a teaspoon of fresh ginger and thought it went fantastic with these oh so yummy and oh so healthy Thai Tacos. This meal does make for one very pretty table and makes healthy eating fun. Good luck in the contest and thanks for the great post.

Very good! Love it being low cal. A fun dish to make and eat. Yes a little messy but its all fun. I did use 2 breasts and did slice before marinading. Then after cooking I cooled and broke apart in small pieces for easy filling into the lettuce. As for the chili sauce I skipped the soy using only the fish soy, being the sodium is more then 1/2 of your DV. I didn't marinade long because the lime juice can make the chicken mush. So this step can be done first and and let sit while prepping the rest. You won`t lose any flavor. I did oil my pan before cooking the chicken as I don`t believe in non stick pans. I also added some sweet pea pods from the garden. As I chopped the nuts I thought adding some to the dipping sauce to thicken it a bit would have been good. I used fresh grown greens from the garden. I did add to the plate thinly slice jalapeno, onions, red bell peppers. And for the herbs I minced cilantro, basil, holy basil. To the cellophane noodles I added some of the sweet chili sauce to coat and flavor. Nice creation. Good luck.

What a lovely meal this recipe made. The marinade was delicious, the chicken perfectly seasoned and cooked. The chili sauce was dynamite, slightly salty, but delicious none the less. The flavor of the assembled taco was incredible, salty, tart and tangy, you could also taste the ginger and garlic, we loved it. We decided to use the cellophane noodles option. The tacos were a little messy to eat but that was part of the fun. I made them exactly as written but couldn't get bibb lettuce so used a nice young romain lettuce, it worked pretty well. Really great use of the contest ingredients, Good Luck in the contest.

I wish I could give this more than five stars. It was an absolutely wonderful dish. All of the bits and pieces were pretty and worked well together. I was surprised at how filling these lettuce tacos turned out to be. I plan to add this to my best of 2013 cookbook.

These lettuce wraps are absolutely delish! Loved all the flavors; especially the chili sauce. I marinated the chicken overnight and had no problem with saltiness from the soy sauce. Took the advice of one reviewer and added some chopped peanuts to the chili sauce. This makes a wonderful light lunch that is very satisfying. Made for ZWT9.
