Quick and Easy Meal: Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

 

Want a quick and easy dinner for the family that's also nice and healthy? Check out these cashew chicken lettuce wraps!

Many months ago, one of my younger sisters sent me a recipe for these cashew chicken lettuce wraps. It sat in my email (starred for follow up, of course) but ignored for far too many months.

Over the holidays, we were home together, and she and her boyfriend prepared this meal for us. That was the final kick in the pants for me to actually make this in my own kitchen. And it’s now a part of standard weekday rotation.

Preparing dinner in advance makes weeknights so much smoother. But sometimes, I really want something fresh and not, essentially, warmed up leftovers. This dish is a perfect option for a weekday night when you’re ready for a fresh meal without a whole lot of fuss. It goes from fridge to table in about 20 minutes.

Did I mention it’s totally healthy too? Check out the recipe below and be sure to let me know if you try it.
