Recipe Ingredients:

1 lb minced chicken breast (can be minced in food processor) 

1 head Boston lettuce, washed and dried, with leaves separated 

3/4 cup unsalted, dry roasted peanuts, chopped (or pine nuts) 

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper, or to taste 

3 tbsp ginger, finely minced 

3 tbsp garlic, peeled and minced
