Fast Chicken Lettuce Wraps {Gluten Free}

My awesome hubby came up with this recipe that's perfect for a summer dinner! It's a faster version of my other lettuce wrap recipe but equally delicious. He added a bunch of fresh vegetables we had on hand and cut everything about the same size. Then just get some crunchy organic lettuce and stuff it with the tasty filling and enjoy!

Here's his Recipe: (serves 4+)
Ingredients:
4 medium carrots, chopped
2 grilled chicken breasts, cubed (lightly seasoned with salt and pepper)
1 medium zucchini, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger root
1 tsp sesame oil (toasted)
3 tbsp olive oil
2-3 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2-3 Tablespoons honey
salt to taste
2 tbsp chopped cilantro

lettuce leaves (butter lettuce or romaine work well).

Directions:
1. In a large saute pan over medium-high heat add olive oil and diced carrots. Saute for 5 minutes. Add minced garlic, minced ginger, sesame oil, and zucchini and saute for another 5 minutes. Add soy sauce and honey and chunked chicken and combine and let cook for a few more minutes. Remove from heat and mix in cilantro. Salt to taste. *I'm not exactly sure how much honey and soy sauce I put in so modify and taste as you go.
