Chicken cashew lettuce wraps

Another Mel's Kitchen Cafe recipe! These lettuce wraps are amazing! Every time I make them we go crazy (well, maybe not the kids, but that's ok because there's more for us). They're so, so good!

1 T olive oil
1/2 c. chopped onion (or less, I always like less!)
1 c. chopped carrots
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
salt, pepper
1 lb. chicken, cut into small pieces or cubed
3 T soy sauce
2 T syrup
1/2 c. cashews
lettuce, washed and peeled to cups/wraps
chopped cucumbers & tomatoes
(the cucumbers make this dish!)

In a skillet, cook onion, carrots, and garlic in oil until they start to soften (couple minutes). Add chicken and cook all together until done (6 minutes or so), adding salt and pepper to your taste. Add soy sauce and syrup and simmer another 2-3 minutes until it's all soft and combined. Add cashews at the very end and cook until warm. Scoop mixture into lettuce cups and add chopped cucumbers and tomatoes.
