Orange-Ginger Chicken and Cashew Lettuce Wraps
Every once in a while I get a big craving for chicken lettuce wraps. I found a recipe on Kristine’s Kitchen that looked irresistible to me. Although this recipe has several ingredients, it’s a snap to put together and takes only minutes to cook. It’s a perfect recipe for a quick and healthy weeknight meal. I loved that these chicken and cashew lettuce wraps are packed with flavor and taste so delicious. We all, kids included, loved these wraps and the leftovers were excellent too.
How to Make Orange-Ginger Chicken and Cashew Lettuce Wraps
Place the soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, water, cornstarch, ginger, garlic, and orange zest in a small bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. Set aside to allow flavors to mingle.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the ground chicken and cook, making sure to break it into pieces, for 4-5 minutes. Add the chopped carrots and bell pepper to the skillet. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is browned and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes.
Once the chicken is cooked, add the cashews and red pepper flakes to the skillet. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the sauce and cook for 1-2 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Place the chicken and vegetable mixture in a serving bowl and top with green onions. Serve immediately with lettuce wraps and sriracha, if desired. Enjoy!
I love these lettuce wraps Pam.
These lettuce wraps look so inviting!
My kinda dish, yum yum. Have a good week. Diane
Mmm I’ve been loving lettuce wraps lately and these ones sound super flavorful and satisfying!
I’m sure these are an especially big hit with your son, since they are finger food! I know Mark would love them even more than the rest of us for that reason.
So do I. We are of like mind this past weekend. I made this also. I am definitely going to try your sauce.
i occasionally splurge on cashews, and those that don’t go directly into my mouth are often used in something very much like this!
What a fantastic idea Pam
I’m making this! It sounds so good and Alexis always loves these at PF Changs. I like that this one is different than theirs. Rock on, Pam.
I cant get this one to print. Is it just me?
Thank you for letting me know – you are not alone! I am sending an e-mail to my web designer to get this problem fixed immediately.
