In a heavy bottom pan heat the oil and gently cook the sliced spring onions for 2 minutes. Add the curry powder and peanut butter, cook stirring for 1 minute then add chicken and baby corn. Stir to coat with the paste. Pour in stock, coconut milk and soy, stir and cook for 10 minutes. If the satay becomes too thick add more stock. Slice the two remaining spring onions then tear the leaves from the lettuce and arrange on a plate. When the satay is ready, spoon a little cooked rice into each lettuce leaf then top with satay, scatter with the spring onions, coriander leaves and squeeze over a few wedges of lime.
