Lettuce Wraps {recipe}

This is one of my families most favorite meals ever...they are so happy when they find out this is what we are going to be eating. 
This was one of the meals that was brought to us right after I had had Payton and it has been on rotation ever since!
Lettuce Wraps
3 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
Teriyaki Sauce
2 heads Bibb {or Boston} Lettuce Leafs, whole
1/2 each Red, Yellow & Orange Bell Pepper, thinly sliced
1 large Cucumber, pealed and thinly sliced
1/2 bag Shredded Carrots {buy them pre-shredded...don't waste your time trying to do it yourself!}
1 bag Chow Mein Noodles
1/4 cup Peanuts, crushed
3 Green Onions, thinly sliced
1 package Bean Sprouts {If you can find them at your market!  I can't find them anywhere - boo!}

Brown Rice
Sweat Chili Sauce {bottled}
Peanut Sauce {recipe below}

Marinate Chicken in teriyaki sauce for a few hours.  
While that's marinating, prepare your brown rice per package directions.
Grill chicken and slice into small strips.
Serve with the toppings and sauces, brown rice on the side.

1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
