A note about serious food allergies

There's more than one way to have a crunchy dinner, this meal bringing several satisfactory snaps. There's the filling, delicious chicken bathed in a teriyaki-Sriracha-honey combination that's lip-smacking serendipity, with the small slivers of crunch in matchstick carrots. Then there's the lettuce cup; every bite into these fresh wonders is refreshingly toothsome. And for that nutty nibble, slivered almonds on top provide a perfect bit to tear through. Don't worry about the noise; you won't hear a single sound outside your satisfied ahhhs.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Separate leaves of lettuce for cups. Pat chicken thighs dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" dice. Season with a pinch of pepper. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.
