Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

A simple and delicious one-pan chicken meal that adds cashews and maple syrup for the crunch and serves in a lettuce wrap for a light and refreshing meal.

 

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of chicken breast or thighs, cut in to bite size pieces
  • ¼ cup butter or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder or 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon natural salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons (or more to taste) coconut amino or naturally fermented soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons (or more to taste) maple syrup
  • ½ cup toasted cashews
  • Sliced red onions for garnish
  • Bibb lettuce leaves for serving

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet and add the chicken (already cut in to bite sized pieces)
  2. Sprinkle with the garlic, salt, pepper, and basil (if using) and sauté until chicken is almost completely cooked and is no loner translucent.
  3. Add the coconut amino and continue to stir until the liquid from the coconut amino starts to evaporate off.
  4. Add the maple syrup and continue to stir for another 2-3 minutes or until maple syrup and coconut amino have cooked down and there is very little liquid left in the pan.
