Thai Lettuce Wraps

The Thai lettuce wraps from the Cheesecake Factory are one of all-time favorites and this recipe is my take on them.

The peanut sauce is seriously so good you can dip just about anything in it and it will taste good.Β I love dinners like this because it’s healthy and the kids can customize their plate. My kids all like grilled meat, rice, and noodles, so this works great for our family. Hope you like them!

THAI LETTUCE WRAPS

Peanut Sauce:

1 1/2 Tb sugar (increase to 2 Tb if using natural peanut butter)

1 Tb minced peeled fresh ginger

3 Tb fresh lime juice

1 Tb soy sauce

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground red pepper

1 clove garlic, crushed

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

2 Tb water

 

Puree in blender or food processor until smooth

For the chicken:

 

I don’t have a real recipe for this part. Sometimes I’ll just salt and pepper the chicken and grill it and that works just fine. This time I created a little marinade with the following:
*3/4 cup canola oil

*1/4 cup soy sauce

*1 tsp or so of sesame oil

*juice of 1 lime

*1 clove of garlic, chopped

*1/2 TB of lemongrass, chopped

*1/2 TB sesame seeds

Don’t hold the chicken marinade recipe to a science because I’m just guessing on those ingredients. You could put marinate the meat in a combination of any of the above ingredients and grill it and I’m sure it would turn out great.

 

Fillings:

*I love the thick chow mein type noodles, but if you can’t find those spaghetti or angel hair pasta work fine

*Butter leaf or Boston lettuce

*purple cabbage

*cilantro

*bell peppers

*snow peas

*bean sprouts

*cucumbers

*chopped peanuts

Enjoy!
