In medium microwavable bowl, stir together gochujang sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir in chicken. Cover loosely with waxed paper. Heat on High power 1 to 2 minutes, stirring halfway through heating, until hot.

In small bowl, stir together kiwifruit, cucumber, bell pepper, onion and cilantro.

For each lettuce cup, spoon about 1/4 cup chicken mixture and a scant 1/4 cup salsa onto lettuce leaf. Serve with a lime wedge.

Recipe tips: 1 pound medium cooked and shelled shrimp can be substituted for the chicken. A serrated peeler works best for peeling kiwifruit.
