Thai-inspired Chicken Lettuce Wraps

In an attempt to eat more healthy I made these for dinner tonight. I was worried that Alex would not like them, but happy day they were a success. They were a little bit labor intensive and messy to eat, but the clean up was easy due to the fabulous Halloween plates that we are using until I find a new china set to replace the one that Mamasita has broken.
