Chicken Lettuce Wraps

When the kids are back in school and you KNOW your afternoon is going to be spent getting them to their after school activities, this is the dinner that will make life SO much easier.  Ground chicken is marinated in soy sauce, brown sugar and a few other easy to find ingredients, and then cooked to unleash and develop all the scrumptious flavors.  Served in crispy lettuce wraps with a side of rice and dinner is served.  You can make everything ahead of time and have a lettuce wrap buffet, so everyone can help themselves.
