Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps created by alligirl

This is from a great cookbook called "Breast Wishes" which is put together by some ladies from a small town to raise money for breast cancer research! They even test all their recipes before they put them in! Haven't hit a bad one yet! I've even subbed in peanuts for the cashews when I was out - still yummy!

    We love this recipe! I've made it a few times, sometimes with lettuce and sometimes with rice. It tastes great either way! Thanks for posting!

    I enjoyed these, although I don't know if I'll ever get DH to eat another one. :( He doesn't see the purpose of the lettuce wrap, and says 'why not a salad?' LOL Hard to explain. Anyway the flavor of this was great, as was the preparation. We used a bit of extra sauce, for some heat, also. I will be making it again, if only for myself! ;-) Thanks for sharing, Cadillacgirl!
