Thai Peanut Lettuce Wraps

 

I love lettuce wraps. They take everything that’s great about a stir fry and wrap it in salad. How great is that? Here is a foolproof recipe that tastes great every time I make it. DSC04998

It doesn’t take much to make these tasties. DSC05000

Here’s a shot for the sauce. I mix a variety of Asian sauces with peanut butter to make the perfect base for this recipe. DSC05001

Sorry, this shot was a little blurry. Once the sauce is prepared, brown your chicken in it. DSC05002

Then, add the veggies and cook down. DSC05007

Once it’s cooked down to your liking, add peanuts. DSC05009Serve with romaine lettuce. It tends to keep its shape a little better than other lettuces, making it easier to eat. Romaine also gives the wraps an extra crunch!

For the sauce:

3 tbsp peanut butter

1 tbsp soy sauce
