Thai Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Lettuce wraps have totally been my jam for the last few months. I’ll make a batch on a Sunday and portion them out to bring to work for lunch during the week and it’s the best lunch ever. Though I could eat them for dinner just fine, my sweet husband wouldn’t love that because of you know, the lettuce, so I bring them for lunch instead.
When I bring a really good lunch to work with me, I not tempted to say things like, “oh, my lunch is not very exciting, I’ll just go out and get something.”
So, you’ve got ground chicken breast cooked with onions, red and yellow bell peppers, and green onions. All good things.
Oh, and did I mention peanut sauce? No? Well, there is peanut sauce and it’s so good, I could just eat it with a spoon. It adds such rich flavor to these wraps. AND THEN, I topped them with chopped peanuts for added crunch and texture and fresh cilantro. So much yum happening here.
If you are serving these as a light lunch or appetizer, I would say the recipe has about 4 servings. If you’ve got hungry peeps to feed, I would say this feeds more like 3 so consider doubling it for a bigger and hungrier crowd. Kind of like Pringles, once you start eating them, it’s hard to stop!
