Thai Chicken Wraps

Published by Bonnie on


Thai chicken wraps have all the traditional thai flavor of peanuts, soy, cilantro and ginger.  They are not too spicy for kids, yet full of flavor.

Because the time to make them is a bit more intensive than a quick 15-minute meal, I usually make a double batch and store in my freezer.  These make awesome leftovers!

The recipe calls for crunchy peanut butter, but we have made an even healthier alternative using 2 Tablespoons of prepared PB2 and some chopped peanuts.   The PB2 version has 85% less fat calories than regular peanut butter, and when used in a sauce like this, you can’t even tell the difference.
