In my recipe I have used green leaf lettuce and curled endive combination. I have piled up some leaves on top of each other and added the cashew chicken to be served.


The quality of romaine or iceberg available in grocery stores when I went for shopping was not great so I chose these two for the wraps.


So basically use whatever lettuce you like and make this recipe- these chicken lettuce wraps taste amazing with any kind of lettuce you get!
