A few weeks ago I was in the mood to make a new crockpot meal and found this one from a pin I saved. I bought the ingredients and was ready to make it for dinner, except the chicken needed 4 hours in the crockpot and neither of us had time to run home from work and start it. I ended up converting the recipe to a non-crockpot dish, so click the link above if you want the crockpot version!
Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps
- 2lbs, skinless chicken breasts
- ½ cup chunky peanut butter
- 1 Tablespoon lime juice
- ½ cup chicken broth
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- Brown rice
Follow the instructions to cook your brown rice. It usually takes ~45 minutes on the stovetop.
Cook the chicken breasts in a pan until they’re cooked all the way through.
While the chicken is cooking, mix together the peanut butter, lime juice, chicken broth, soy sauce, and honey in a smaller pot and put on medium-low heat so it’ll reduce into a peanut sauce.
When the chicken is cooked, shred it into smaller pieces, and add to the peanut sauce pot. Allow the chicken and sauce to cook together for 10-15 more minutes.
Use a piece of lettuce as your base, layer in the brown rice and the chicken and top with sesame seeds & anything else (cilantro, peanuts, or sriracha would be good). Enjoy!
Results: I realllllllly liked the flavors! I’m going to keep this sauce recipe handy to put on other dishes too!
