  • Melt the butter in a large skillet and add the chicken.
  • Sprinkle with the garlic powder, salt, pepper, and basil (if using) and saute until the chicken is almost completely cooked.
  • Add the coconut aminos and continue to stir until the liquid from the coconut aminos starts to evaporate off.
  • Add the maple syrup and continue to stir for another 2-3 minutes or until maple syrup and coconut aminos have cooked down and there is very little liquid left in the pan.
  • Add cashews and stir until heated.
  • Let cool slightly and serve in lettuce leaves, topped with thinly sliced red onions.


This can also be served over cauliflower rice.
