      While I was cooking the chicken I was a bit skeptical, it just didn't seem right. I recipe also doesn't specifically say how to fry the cashews so I just stirfried them before I did the chicken and then chopped them up. We used green leaf lettuce (i hate iceberg) and wrapped them one by one at the table. WE LOVED THEM!! I don't really remember what PFChang's lettuce wraps are like (or if these are supposed to be similar) but they were much better. The saltiness and richness of the cashews really added to the rolls--more than a peanut would have. We will add this to our regular recipe file. Very easy too!

      We definitely enjoyed this. I added water chestnuts chopped up and I don't use msg. But other than that followed the recipe. Next time will add in a chili pepper to add a little more flavor. Would also suggest updating the title to "Wraps" so it comes up with all the other lettuce wraps recipes - I accidently stumbled on this one when I mistyped my search request.
