2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp minced fresh ginger
2 tbsp vegetable stock
3-4 tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp honey
1 package gorund white meat chicken
1/3 cup chopped scallions
1 1/2 yellow bell peppers, chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 or 3 drops sesame oil
1/4 tsp red chili flakes (optional)
One head of Bibb or romaine lettuce
Garniches:  sesame seeds, crushed cashews, chopped cilantros, chopped scallion

Saute the garlic and ginger in vegetable stock over medium heat until soft, add more stock if pan gets too dry.  In a small bowl, whisk the soy sauce, vinegar, and honey and set aside.

Add the chicken to the garlic and ginger and raise the cooking temperature to medium/high.  Break the ground chicken into small crumbles with a spoon as it cooks.  When the chicken changes color from pink to white add the soy mixture, scallions, and yellow peppers.
