Lettuce Eat Wraps!!

Who needs salty PF Changs wraps??? We serve these with hoisin cashew sauce and a dash of schirracha, diced pineapple and toasted almonds.

How to make the filling:
1.5 pounds ground chicken breast
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tbs hoisin sauce
1 tbs minced scallion

In a wok or frying pan, add some peanut oil until it shimmers and then brown meat about 3 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and constantly stir so to not burn the garlic -  about 5 minutes, add soy sauce, hoisin & toss in scallions.

Cashew Sauce:
1 tbs peanut or canola oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 tbs hoisin sauce
1/2 cup cashew butter
1/2 cup water
1 tbs Shiracha Chili sauce

Over medium heat, warm oil, add garlic and ginger and stir for about half a minute. Add the cashew butter, hoisin, water and Shiracha sauce and stri until smooth. If it is too thick a little bit more water.

Rinse and dry some fresh Butter Lettuce leaves. Serve with chopped toasted almonds and pineapple chunks with the meat. The sauce goes great with spring rolls, celery, carrot sticks, sliced red peppers. Well, just about anything really!!
