Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by KLHquilts

Had this last night at a friend's house, and it was FABULOUS. My friend kept saying, "This won't be the most delicious dinner you've ever had, but it's really healthy!" But she was wrong -- it was delicious. If you want to lighten the recipe, use cooking spray instead of oil, and use water chestnuts instead of almonds.

OMG! FABULOUS only begins to describe this meal. I've always loved chicken lettuce wraps, but the cherries make it unique.
