Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Uh oh! It's summer and I have all the time in the world to cook! Tried out this lettuce wraps recipe today and they taste like something you'd get at a restaurant for sure. Mmm.

For the stir-fry sauce:
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp sesame oil

For the cashew chicken:
About 3/4 lb chicken breasts, diced
About 8 leaves of lettuce
3 tbsp canola oil
1 c onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp soy sauce
1/4 c cashews, chopped
1/4 c chopped green onions

First, whisk all ingredients for the stir-fry sauce together, making sure to dissolve brown sugar, and set aside. Heat canola oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add diced chicken and brown (about 4-5 min). Remove chicken brown the oil, then add onions, garlic, and 1 tsp of soy sauce to pan. When the onions and garlic are brown and tender, add the stir-fry sauce, browned chicken, and cashews. Saute mixture for a few more minutes and remove from heat. Sprinkle green onions into pan and stir. Spoon chicken mixture into lettuce leaves and enjoy!
