  • Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add scallion whites, serrano, ginger, and garlic; cook until starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add chicken; cook, breaking it up with a spoon or potato masher, until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Add the peanut sauce to the chicken mixture; cook until the sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in jicama and scallion greens.

  • To serve, make 8 stacks of 2 lettuce leaves each. Divide rice, the chicken mixture, cucumber, and cilantro among the lettuce cups. Serve with lime wedges.
