3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup grated daikon radish
2 carrots, grated
1/4 cup bean sprouts
3 stalks (1/2 cup) green onions
60ml Szechuan sauce
1 tbsp Chinese five-spice powder
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsps grapeseed oil, for frying
30g butter
1 lemon, juiced
1 head Bibb lettuce leaves
1) Split the chicken breasts in half. If too thick, pound them out to make them thinner.

2) In a medium bowl, mix together the radish, carrots, bean sprouts and spring onions. Add the Szechuan sauce.

3) In another small bowl, mix together the five-spice, cayenne, salt and pepper. Season the chicken breasts lightly with the spice rub and then cut into strips.

4) Heat the oil in a large pan over a high heat. When very hot, sear the chicken for 4 minutes on each side. Add the butter and lemon to the pan and baste the chicken for another minute. Remove the chicken to a plate to cool.

5) Once cooled, dice or shred the chicken. Place a spoonful of the vegetable mixture and a spoonful of the shredded chicken on each leaf of lettuce. Roll and serve.
