Spicy Peanut Chicken Wrap

Spicy Peanut Chicken Wrap

I kind of suck when it comes to lunch. I usually pack leftovers or salads. Or half the time I am in such a rush in the mornings, I walk over to this little cafe that is so conveniently located right across from my building. There are lots of great healthier options there, but it’s not so good on the wallet. I am trying to be better about bringing lunches. My other issue is that I get tired of things really quickly. I can only eat the same sandwich or salad so many times before I want nothing more to do with it for at least a month. This drives my husband crazy because he is the exact opposite.

I need something I can make in 10 minutes or less because I just can’t sacrifice sleep. I just won’t do it. You can’t make me! I’ve been on a peanut butter kick lately, but I need something a little more exciting than the good ol’ peanut butter and jelly. Or course my mind goes straight to Thai flavors. Bring on the spicy peanut sauce and let’s put it in a chicken wrap! Done and done.

Spicy Peanut Chicken Wrap

Yield: 1 wrap

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

For the peanut sauce:

  • 2 tbs. peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 1 tbs. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs. low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. Sriracha (can add more if you want)
  • 1/2 tbs. honey

For the wrap:

  • 1 medium to large flour tortilla
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, sliced (I used rotisserie)
  • about 4 fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
  • 2 tbs. grated carrots
  • 2 tbs. grated cabbage

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the sauce.
  2. Lay the tortilla on a flat surface. Place the chicken in the middle of the tortilla. Spread the basil, carrots, and cabbage on top of the chicken. Drizzle as much of the peanut sauce as you want on top.
  3. Roll the mixture up nice and tight in the tortilla. Cut in half and serve!

  1. One word.. Brilliant!! What a fantastic idea to put Thai flavors and peanut sauce into a wrap. I am loving the Thai basil leaves in it too. :)

  2. You must have read my mind, last night it was a fend for yourself night for dinner and I made a spicy peanut wrap! I love that you used cabbage in the recipe! Your photos are as beautiful as always!!! Wonderful recipe!

  3. This looks so good and easy! There was a place near where I used to work in DC that had a Thai Chicken Wrap and Salad that was just like this. I think I have all of these ingredients….this just might be my dinner! Love your creative wm also by the way ;)

  5. Such a yummy looking wrap! I could totally go for this for lunch one day! Thanks, Stephanie.

  6. What an awesome looking wrap! I love peanut sauce. I always just pack leftovers for lunch … which sometimes makes my husband mad since I tell him he can’t have seconds at dinner since then we won’t have anything to bring to work for lunch : ) I think these wraps would make him happy lol

  7. I need to make this peanut butter sauce in bulk and put it on pretty much everything Stephanie! Pinning it for sure. Such a prefect wrap for my packed lunches. :)

  8. I have the exact same problem!! Lunches are the hardest! It’s so difficult to find things to switch it up that are easy. It’s usually salads for me or occasionally left overs…not much creativity here haha. Like yours, my hubby could eat the same thing every day for a month and not get sick of it – which is so strange to me!

    But this wrap looks great – I could totally make this one happen :) I love peanut sauce and it’s so easy to throw together!
