  • EASY Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps …this delicious recipe tastes better than take out and is done in 20 minutes. A one pot dish the whole family will love!

    This recipe is perfect for summer and one you need to put on your “must try” list. It’s one my whole family loves and a dish my husband and I always end up going back for seconds. The chicken is so tender and the sauce on top is truly divine. We love serving the cashew chicken in lettuce wraps, but you could also serve over a bed of rice.

    The cashews hidden throughout this dish are definitely what take the chicken over the top. Cashews are one my favorite snacks, so any chance I can sneak them into dinner, it’s a win. They have so much flavor and are always satisfying. I love to use the salted roasted cashews for this recipe… it always adds the perfect flavor. I may have snuck a few cashews while making it too. ;)

    The best thing about this recipe is it’s made in one pan and done in 20 minutes. Then all you need to do is serve it in a lettuce wrap. We like to add a few green onions on top too.
