Hoisin Chicken San Choy Bao

You could, in theory, serve this sticky hoisin chicken tumbled over rice with the lettuce on the side, but where's the fun in that? It's a balancing act to ensure your leaf cup doesn't runneth over with the saucy, veg-packed mix before you get it to your mouth. It's a challenge you'll be happy to accept.
