Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

1 1/2 lb. Chicken breast tenders, cut into small bite sized pieces (easier to chop when partially frozen
1/3 cup Mr. Yoshida's Original Gourmet Sauce (I buy it at Costco)
1/8 cup Soy Sauce
1/8 cup Water
2 Tbsp. Oil
1 Tbsp. flour
1- 8 oz. can sliced water chestnuts, drained & sliced into strips
1 cup chopped cashews
1 head of lettuce, seperate the leaves
1 package of Maifun Rice Sticks (found in Asain food aisle), fried according to package directions

1. Place chicken in a bowl with Mr. Yoshida's sauce, soy sauce and water. Mix together and let chicken marinade 15-30 minutes.

2. While chicken marinades cook rice sticks, slice water chestnuts, chop cashews, and prepare lettuce.

3. Put oil in a stir-fry pan and put over medium high heat. When oil is hot place the chicken in the oil with the marinde and cook about five minutes. Then add the flour to the chicken and stir.

4. Mix in water chestnuts and cashews and let it cook a minute or two more.

5. Place chicken on lettuce leaves and top with rice sticks. Serve with steamed white or brown rice.

When I saw one of the teachers brought the cashew chicken lettuce wraps, I said to myself, "Oh it does look good. I will have to try it myself one day." I haven't, so I will have to kick myself to do it.
