Chicken and Cashew Apricot Lettuce Cups

Preparation Time: 6 min

 Cooking Time: 12 min


  • 600 grams chicken breast, sliced in short strips
  • 8 dried apricots, cut in quarters   (best to get Turkish dried apricots – no chemical preservatives)
  • 1 orange, juiced and zest finely grated
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 ice-berg lettuce (or any other that could form a cup)
  • Virgin coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil


    1. Slice chicken into short strips and add to a mixing bowl.
    2. Grate the zest from orange and then squeeze juice and add to a mixing bowl. Thoroughly coat chicken and let it sit.
    3. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add chicken with remaining orange juice and zest and cook, mixing with wooden spoon to prevent burning.
    4. Once chicken is lightly cooked, add chopped apricots and cashews and cook until juice reduces.
    5. To serve place lettuce cups on plates and scoop mix evenly into each cup.
