Peanut Sauce Lettuce Wraps

I fell in love with lettuce wraps at PF Chang's and I also made this Peanut Sauce recipe out of the Thailand the Beautiful cookbook and so I decided I wanted to try to put them together. They are to die for. This is also the recipe that taught us that our oldest son Caleb had a peanut allergy and so we don't get to eat it as often and I would like...

1 ¾ c coconut milk
1 Tbsp red curry paste
¼ c fish sauce
3 Tbsp sugar
1 c peanuts, ground

Wrap insides:
1 chicken breast, minced
2 cloves garlic
¼ onion, minced

For sauce place all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes. For the wrap insides we put the chicken, onion, and garlic through the food processor (make sure you do it after the peanuts). Add the chicken mixture and a little bit of oil to a skillet and stir-fry until chicken is done. You can also add diced carrot, broccoli, and water chestnuts to the insides to give it more flavor. Wash lettuce and then put a little rice, chicken mixture, and sauce in the lettuce to make a wrap.
