February 25: Cashew Chicken Wraps

I love lettuce wraps. And love this one. I found it on Pinterest.

Stir fry Sauce:
2 TB soy sauce
1 TB rice vinegar
1 TB brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 TB sesame oil

For Cashew Chicken:
2 chicken breasts (about 3/4 lb total), diced
8 leaves of green leaf or ice burg lettuce
3 TB canola oil
1 c onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
21 tsp soy sauce
1./4 c cashews, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

For fry sauce:
Mix all ingredients making sure to dissolve brown sugar. Set aside.
For Cashew Chicken:
Heat canola oil in pan over medium to medium heat heat. Add diced chicken and brown (about 4-5 minutes.) Remove chicken from oil. Add onions, garlic and 1 tsp soy sauce to pan; brown. When onions are garlic are brown and tender, add stir fry sauce, browned chicken, and cashews. Saute mixture for a few minutes and remove from heat.
Spoon chicken mixture into individual lettuce leaves. Add your favorite hot sauce, more cashews or basil.
