Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
  • 1 cup  carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 cup  onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup crushed peanuts
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Lettuce leaves-Living lettuce, romaine, or green leaf

Honey Sriracha Sauce

  • 2-3 tsp sriracha (depending on how spicy you like it)

  • 1  1/2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil and saute onions, carrots, and garlic until tender. Add peanuts and shredded chicken and heat through and set aside. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine sriracha, honey, soy sauce, ginger and peanut butter. Mix until smooth.
  3. Add sauce to chicken and vegetable skillet and mix until fully incorporated. 
  4. Spoon a small amount of rice on top of lettuce leaf and top with chicken and vegetable mixture. 
  5. Top with red pepper flakes for extra spice

Notes

  1. By nature, this isn't a saucy meal BUT... want it saucy!? Double the sauce for double the fun!
  2. Chop the onions, carrots, and peanuts in a food processor
  3. You can use any type of lettuce leaves but my favorite are living lettuce, or romaine bibs. 
  4. Add crushed red pepper to give your wraps more of a kick
  5. An easy way to shred chicken is by using a stand mixer.
