Lettuce Wraps Made Easy

This recipe actually came from the trainers on the Biggest Loser. These lettuce wraps were delicious and very easy to make. I made the unfortunate mistake of serving these by themselves so we were still hungry afterwards! I think if you served these with brown rice, this would make one gratifying dinner. These would also be fun for appetizers but kind of messy, so make sure to serve them with a napkin and fork!
Adapted from Delish
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb. ground chicken breast
2 tablespoons all natural low-fat peanut butter
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki sauce
1 small can drained water chestnuts
1/2 chopped onions
Handful of cashew nuts
4-6 leaves romaine lettuce
In a pan, heat olive oil. Add ground chicken and brown; stir occasionally to separate the meat.
Add peanut butter, soy sauce; and teriyaki sauce to the chicken until well mixed.
Add water chestnuts, onions; and cashews.
After chicken is completely brown, let simmer for about five minutes; stirring every couple of minutes. Uncover and cook until a thick consistency.
Cool and serve on large lettuce leaves.
