Spicy Chicken and Cashew Lettuce Wraps
3 Chicken Breasts
8 pieces of large leaf lettuce
2 Tbs. Vegetable Oil
1-2 green onions
1 Cloves garlic
1 tsp. soy sauce
1/4 Cup chopped Cashews
2 Tbs. Soy Sauce (I used lite and it was plenty salty)
1 Tbs. Rice Vinegar
1 Tbs. Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp. Ground Ginger
1 tsp. Sesame Oil
Start off with cutting up the chicken into small pieces. The smaller, the better.
Slice the green onion and dice the garlic.
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients listed for the sauce. Whisk, making sure the brown sugar has dissolved.
Add the 2 Tbs. Vegetable oil to a frying pan and heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned.
Once cooked through, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and keep on a plate near by.
Back in the fry pan, add the 1 Tbs. of soy sauce and the garlic and green onion. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly to prevent the garlic from burning.
Add the chicken back to the pan along with the sauce you previously made. Stir to coat all the chicken and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Serve on lettuce.
