Coconut Chicken Lettuce

Lettuce is usually eaten raw and mixed with salads and sandwiches and the only Filipino food I know that contains lettuce is the fresh lumpia. Seldom have I seen Filipino cooked dishes that contains lettuce specially in a dish like ginataang manok or chicken with coconut milk. If you will cook this dish, it is better to make the lettuce only half-cooked or almost raw to retain the crunchy texture of the lettuce.
