chicken salad with cashews lettuce wraps

The recipe called for dried figs and I had fresh so I just ate them on the side.
I actually didn't follow the recipe at all. I made my own.

Roast 4 whole chicken legs (with salt, pepper and onion. Come on now you don't just roast chicken plain.  Discard the skin, save the juice for soup later, whenever you make soup. Pick off the meat and put in a large bowl. In a small bowl combine 1/2 cup mayonnaise, juice of 1 lime and 2 tsp chipotle chile powder. Chop 3 celery stalks into medium dice. Combine sauce with chicken. Add celery and 1/2 cup roasted cashews.
Take a 1/2 cup scoop of chicken salad and place in the middle of a large lettuce leaf.
