Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps

2My hubby loves peanut butter. He wakes up in the middle of the night with his stomach grumbling and he always stumbles into the kitchen and makes himself a peanut butter sandwich with a cup of cold milk of course. I decided to be adventurous and make this Thai peanut chicken wrap for dinner one night. I  thought that the peanut butter would win over my hubby and boy was I right! He loved these wraps and took the leftovers for lunch the next day. This is a really easy recipe, however, after making it there are some changes I would make. I’ll make note of these changes later. I found the original recipe here. The recipe recommends sauteing the broccoli slaw in butter. I did this and found that it made the slaw too soggy and the wrap lost a lot of crunch factor. I would recommend leaving whatever veggies you choose to use, raw. I also made my own tortillas and you can find the recipe here.

Ingredients:4

Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Wrap:

  • 1 bag of broccoli slaw (or use any vegetables that you prefer)
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2-3 chicken breasts cut into strips (or use a package of chicken strips for a faster option)
  • flour tortillas (or make your own use this recipe)
  • dried peanuts to garnish
  • cilantro to garnish

Instructions:

  1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium sized pot. Cook over medium-low heat and stir it every once in a while. Cook for 7-10 minutes or until smooth and thickened and heated through.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet and add garlic. Cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add chicken strips and cook until they are cooked through.
  3. Once chicken is cooked through and golden brown add 1/2 cup of the peanut sauce to the chicken. Stir until the chicken is evenly coated.
  4. Assemble wraps by placing some strips of chicken in the middle and top with your choice of vegetables. Garnish with peanuts and cilantro and a fresh squeeze of lime juice.
  5. Use the remaining peanut sauce for dipping!

Enjoy!!
