Description

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce (Gluten-Free) – Quick & easy chicken lettuce wraps drizzled with the most amazing peanut sauce. This fast, fresh dinner is always a winner! 


Ingredients

Scale

FOR THE CHICKEN:

  • 1 lb. ground chicken*
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. curry powder
  • 2 Tbsp. gluten-free tamari, coconut aminos, or soy sauce.
  • 1 green onion
  • 2 Tbsp. cilantro or mint
  • 1 tsp. olive oil

FOR THE PEANUT SAUCE:

  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (I prefer creamy for peanut sauce)
  • 34 Tbsp. coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp. reduced-sodium gluten-free tamari, coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

FOR THE LETTUCE WRAPS:

  • 812 leaves butter lettuce (can also use iceberg or romaine, if desired)
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced (julienned) or diced
  • 1 large carrot, thinly sliced (julienned) or diced
  • 1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced (julienned) or diced
  • 1/41/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup crushed peanuts

Instructions

FIRST, MIX UP YOUR PEANUT SAUCE:

  1. In a small bowl or jar, combine peanut butter, 3 Tbsp. coconut milk, tamari, and syrup.
  2. Whisk until completely smooth, adding more coconut milk as desired, to thin it out.
  3. Set aside while you cook your chicken.

COOK THE CHICKEN:

  1. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add chicken and cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through, 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add garlic, ginger, tamari, curry powder and green onion and cook 1 minute longer. (Note: the chicken will not be super saucy since you don’t want it dripping out of your lettuce wraps.)
  4. Garnish with cilantro or mint (if desired), then assemble your lettuce wraps.

ASSEMBLE LETTUCE WRAPS:

  1. Spoon cooked chicken and prepared veggies into lettuce leaves.
  2. Drizzle with peanut sauce & top with extras, like fresh herbs, crushed peanuts, etc. & enjoy!

Notes

*If you can’t find ground chicken, it’s easy to make your own! Just add boneless, skinless chicken breast or chicken thighs to a food processor fitted with the metal S blade and pulse until the chicken is finely ground.
