Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Here is my very simple recipe for Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps which is a Thai recipe. The hoisin sauce is one of my favorite sauces for any dish and this recipe is addicting. This is a Keto – friendly meal (without the chow mein noodles) which you will enjoy with your family again and again. Alternatively you can serve with rice, if desired. If you have a peanut allergy you can easily leave out the cashews and please check other sauces for their ingredients.
