Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps

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

Ingredients:thai-peanut-chicken_02
  • 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
  • Lettuce

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!
