Thai Style Lettuce Wraps step by step
- To make the sauce, first microwave the peanut butter 10-15 seconds to make it runnier (only if needed), then place the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, water, brown sugar, lime juice, sesame oil and sriracha in a small bowl and whisk together until thoroughly combined. Set this aside..
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground chicken and cook, breaking it up as you go, until it is fully cooked through..
- Add the mushrooms, onions and garlic to the skillet. Cook for 3-5 more minutes, until the onions and mushrooms are softened. Stir in the zucchini and carrots and cook just 2 minutes more..
- Pour the sauce over the chicken and veggie mixture. Season to taste with pepper, ground ginger and dried basil. Remove from heat and serve over the prepared lettuce. I served mine over romaine lettuce and garnished them with some green onions, sesame seeds and some thinly sliced purple cabbage, but just use whatever toppings you'd like..
- Refrigerate any leftovers. This reheats nice and makes a great lunch, appetizer or serve with a grain for a light dinner..
- This is equally as tasty served over some brown rice or quinoa..
