No photos, but good meal

So I watched an episode of Extreme Chef, and it inspired me to cook.  We had just returned from a road trip, San Antonio, and were probably deliver pizza bound prior to that.
After a facebook posting about Pei Wei lettuce wraps, I couldn't get it out of my mind.
So I jumped in the car and about 40 minutes later, we were eating oriental chicken lettuce wraps!!

I got 2 chicken breasts, carrots, boston lettuce, garlic and cilantro...the rest I already had.

I diced up the chicken very small, grated some carrots, chopped peanuts, chopped garlic, chopped cucumber, chopped carrots (yes 2 different chops on the carrots) and s/p.  I added them to a saucepan, in that order with some olive oil.  Once it was almost cooked, I added soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil and rice wine vinegar (I also snuck in a couple dashes of hot sauce).  Once nice and coozy, I spooned it into boston lettuce leaf.  Topped with cilantro and BAM!  There you have it!
I served it with some seedless watermelon.

Not as Extreme as the chefs on the show, but start to finish (including shopping) was quite impressive at 40 minutes.
