GF Thai Chicken Wraps

Thai Chicken Wraps (from Glutenfreemommy.com)

Looking for something different for dinner?  You cannot go wrong with Thai food!  Ethnic, exotic and filling, Thai food brings that something special to the dinner table;  you know,  those times when you are hungry but can’t decide what you are in the food for and your normal dinner solutions just won’t do.  I found a gluten free chicken wrap dish that is simply Delish!   I made these for my family and there were no leftovers and I am on strict orders to make these again!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce (as with all ingredients make sure you use a gf brand)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or garlic salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast strips
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 4 cups packaged shredded broccoli-slaw mix
  • 1/2 of a medium red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 6-8 brown rice tortillas or large lettuce leaves

Directions:

  1. For the peanut sauce, in a small saucepan combine sugar, peanut butter,
    soy sauce, water, the 2 tablespoons cooking oil, and the garlic. Heat
    until the sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently. Set aside.
    NOTE: The sugar can be adjusted to taste- some peanut butter brands are a lot sweeter than others.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl the add chicken and season evenly with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet heat the cooking oil. Cook and stir seasoned chicken in hot oil over medium-high heat until cooked through. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm. Add broccoli mix, onion, and ginger to skillet. Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from heat.
  4. To assemble, spread each tortilla with about 1 tablespoon of the
    peanut sauce. Top with chicken strips and vegetable mixture. Roll up
    each tortilla, secure with a toothpick, and serve immediately with
    remaining sauce.

An alternative way to serve this dish is to dice up the chicken and vegetables after it is cooked and use large lettuce leaves in lieu of a tortilla.  The ice cold lettuce leaf add a crispy crunch to each bite and gave it a more “fresh” taste.  Either way, this recipe is super yummy and is sure to please your rowdy clan just as much as it did mine!
