In a small bowl whisk together the honey, fish sauce, ginger, and garlic. Chop chicken into small bite-sized pieces. Heat the coconut oil on medium heat in a sauté pan, and add diced chicken and nuts/seeds to your pan.

Add in the honey garlic marinade and cook, stirring until well browned (about 5 to 6 minutes). Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the green onion and carrots.

Wash the whole lettuce leaves and gently dry. Divide the chicken mix into 8 servings and spoon into the lettuce cups. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, chopped cilantro, mint, and thinly sliced pepper.
