Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Anyone else get a craving for chicken lettuce wraps every now and again? It happens to me when I pass a PF Changs and think about their DELIGHTFUL chicken lettuce wraps. I had to make my own version because unfortunately theirs always leaves me needing a nap 😴😂 I’m obsessed with this healthy version! So much so that I always make a double batch because they are so good leftover once the flavors have really melded together. They are a great use for my homemade hoisin sauce as well.
