Ginger-Peanut Chicken-Salad Wraps

thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Adapted from Cooking Light.

If you love the taste of Peanut Butter then you must try this dish!  It has a very nice peanut butter flavor that incorporates the flavors of Thai Cooking in a superb way.

I added extra chili pepper flakes to give it a spicy touch.  In this recipe it is done as a wrap with a tortilla. To cut out some carbs, I just used lettuce and it was perfect this way and I will make it this way when I repeat this recipe soon. 🙂

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1  teaspoon  olive oil
  • 6  (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
