Double It!

After last night's dud I'm glad tonight's dinner had one major problem.....We didn't have enough!  I'll be keeping this lovely little pinterest find and doubling it next time. The lettuce wraps were a nice healthy twist and it was perfect when topped off with a little sriracha!
Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps
(from tastykitchen.com)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 chicken breasts, diced
8 leaves of greenleaf or iceburg lettuce
3 tablespoons peanut oil
1 cup onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 cup cashews, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Mix soy, vinegar, brown sugar, red pepper, ginger and sesame oil. Set aside.
2. Heat peanut oil in pan over medium to medium high heat. Add diced chicken and brown (about 4-5 minutes). Remove chicken from oil. Add onions, garlic and 1 teaspoon soy sauce to pan; brown. When onions and garlic are brown and tender, add stir fry sauce, browned chicken, and cashews. Saute mixture for a few minutes and remove from heat.
3. Spoon chicken mixture into individual lettuce leaves. Add your favorite hot sauce, more cashews or basil.
