Ginger Peanut Chicken Salad Wraps Recipe (tnt)

This is one of my favorite summer-time salads!

Ginger Peanut Chicken Salad Wraps
1 tsp olive oil
6 (4 oz) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
1 c chopped seeded peeled cucumber
c chopped red bell pepper
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp minced peeled fresh ginger
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
tsp salt
tsp ground red pepper
1 garlic clove, crushed
c creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp water
3 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
8 (8) flour tortillas (I usually use whole wheat)
4 c chopped romaine lettuce

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove the chicken from the pan and cool. Shred the chicken into bite-size pieces. Place chicken, cucumber, and bell pepper in a large bowl and set aside.

Place sugar and the next 6 ingredients (sugar through garlic) in a blender and process until smooth. Add peanut butter and water, process until smooth, scraping sides. Add peanut butter mixture to chicken mixture and stir well. Add cilantro and toss well. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spoon c chicken mixture onto each tortilla, top each serving with c lettuce and roll up.

You're welcome! I love it in the summer. Kitchenelf made it the other night and used large romaine lettuce leaves rather than tortillas. When I made it earlier this week I realized I didn't have a cucumber (which was fine as they're not my favorite) so I subbed zucchini. Not bad at all!

Thumbs up

PA Baker thanks again for a great recipe. I think using shredded cabbage and sprinkling the chicken/peanut butter mixture with green onions and toasted sesame seeds would be yummy.

OM gosh that is lovely sounding, cutting and pasting as we speak I just have cashew butter (I think) on hand, which might work as cashews are common in Asian inspired and traditional dishes too.
