Heat coconut oil in a large non-stick frying pan.

Add the chicken mince, tamari and olive oil and sauté until brown and well-cooked. Set aside.

Prepare lettuce cups by chopping off the stem of the lettuce and carefully pulling each lettuce leaf/cup away from the head of lettuce. Set aside and repeat until you have 5-6 lettuce cups.
