Asian Chicken Wraps


I’m always on the lookout for a new recipe thats quick and easy to take in my lunches. Being a huge fan of peanut sauces, when I came across this recipe online – I just had to try it! It’s a delicious take on a chicken salad wrap that’s crunchy and full of flavour. I loved it and just had to share:

Asian Chicken Wraps

For The Chicken Wraps:
– 3 cups coleslaw mix
– 1 cup shredded carrots
– 1/3 cup roasted peanuts
– 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
– 2 cooked chicken breasts, chopped or sliced
– 6 large tortillas

For The Peanut Sauce:
– 1/4 cup honey
– 1/4 cup olive oil (or vegetable oil)
– 1/4 cup peanut butter
– 3 tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar
– 1 tbsp soy sauce
– 1 tsp sesame oil
– 1/2 tsp pepper
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 1/4 – 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
– 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
– 1 large garlic clove, minced

In a medium bowl, whisk together the peanut sauce ingredients. In another bowl, add the cabbage, carrots, cilantro, and peanuts. Pour the sauce over the mixture and stir. Let this sit while you prepare the tortillas and chicken. Heat up the tortillas for about 10 seconds in the microwave to make them easier to work with. Divide the chicken and coleslaw between each tortilla. Roll tightly, securing with toothpicks if necessary.
