There are just so many ways to eat. For this dish, we’re making it easy. You’ll sauté chicken with traditional aromatics, top it with bright, peppery watermelon radishes and crunchy jicama then serve it on a leaf of crispy butter lettuce. Simply roll the leaf around the filling, pick it up and enjoy. You may not even need utensils for this one, chefs.

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Trim off and discard the roots of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Peel and mince the ginger. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop the leaves. Cut off and discard the root of the lettuce, then separate the leaves. Using a peeler, remove the green rind of the lime, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest. Quarter the lime. Peel the jicama and cut into thin matchsticks. Thinly slice the watermelon radish and place in a bowl of ice water.
