Ingredients:

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
4 tbsp. oyster sauce
2 tbsp. sesame oil or olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1 tsp. chili paste
1/3 c. raw cashews
8 leaves of lettuce
Additional Toppings (optional): thinly sliced basil, sesame seeds, grated carrots, peas, bean sprouts, etc.

Directions:

Place the chicken in a zip lock bag with the oyster sauce, soy sauce and chili paste. Let the chicken marinate for 10 minutes. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp. of sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Increase the heat to medium-high heat, add the chicken and the remaining oil, and stir-fry until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Once the chicken is cooked, add the cashews and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Spoon the mixture into the individual lettuce leaves, top with any additional toppings, if desired. Enjoy!!
