Sesame & Ginger Chicken

So this has lime, not lemon. But close enough, right?
I just tried this the other day and it was delicious! And super healthy too. And of course easy!

Sesame & Ginger Chicken Lettuce Wraps
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in bite-size pieces
1/4 c Asian-style dressing with sesame and ginger
2 c julienned carrots
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
1 head butterhead lettuce, leaves separated
1/4 c honey-roasted peanuts, chopped
Lime wedges

Sprinkle chicken with salt and peppers. Lightly coat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat over med-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir for 3 min or until browned. Add 1 TBSP dressing and the carrots to skillet; cook and stir for 2-3 more min or until carrots are crisp-tender and chicken is no longer pink. Stir in red pepper.
Stack lettuce on plates. Top with chicken-carrot mixture. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Serve with remaining dressing and lime wedges.
