Ingredients

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

3 cups diced mango
2 cups red bell pepper strips
1 cup minced cilantro
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
24 large Boston or iceberg lettuce leaves

1. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add rice and sauté 2 to 3 minutes until rice starts to stick.

2. Remove from heat and place in large bowl. Stir in peanut sauce and toss well to coat completely.

3. Stir in chicken strips, mango, peppers and cilantro. Adjust
seasonings with salt and pepper.
