Spicy Thai Chicken Wraps

Spicy Thai Chicken Wraps

Perfect game day finger food! Probably my most favorite and used Rachel Ray recipe from her 30 Minute Meals book. I have made these several times but still have not managed to make it under 30 minutes! I’d say the veggie preparation and wrap assembly takes up the bulk of the time, turning it into more of a 45 minute meal. Big on flavor and very fresh, these wraps are popular for both guys, gals, and kids. Eating with your hands also makes for easy clean up after the party too.

The wraps are composed of 3 elements: (1) spicy peanut sauce. (2) Fresh veggie salad. (3) Chicken strips hot off the skillet.

Spicy Peanut Sauce
This addictive peanut sauce has a cayenne pepper kick which gives it heat and flavor. Don’t skip on it even if you are a wuss like me! Just add a little, taste the sauce, add more to your liking.

Scooping Cucumber pulpRemove the watery cucumber pulp with a spoon so the wrap doesn’t get soggy.

Fresh basil and mintFresh basil and mint are essential to this recipe, I love the combination.

SaladBeautiful mix of crunchy, healthy vegetable salad to fill the wraps.

Chopped Grilled ChickenHot off the skillet, add chopped grilled chicken to your wrap.
