Thai Chicken Wrap

Note: received this recipe in a Ravelry group recipe swap, and the yield is not given. Definitely more than 2, but I cannot remember if I halved the recipe or what. Use best judgment based on given amount of chicken.
  • 3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp pepper
  • 6 (8-10inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 4 C packaged shredded broccoli (broccoli slaw mix)
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
For Thai Peanut Sauce:
  • 3 Tbsp white or brown sugar
  • 1/4 C creamy peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • dash Tabasco sauce
1. Slice the chicken into thin strips for stir-frying. Season with garlic salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet and cook the seasoned chicken over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes, or until no longer pink. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Add the shredded broccoli, onion, and ginger to the hot skillet. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
2. Wrap the tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave on high power for 30 seconds to soften. OR wrap tortillas in foil and heat in a 350degree oven for 10 minutes.
3. To make sauce, combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently.
4. To assemble, spread each tortilla with about 1 Tbsp Thai Peanut Sauce. Divide the chicken strips and vegetable mixture among the tortillas and roll them up, securing with toothpicks. Serve remaining peanut sauce on the side.

Robyn's notes: this was good, we both enjoyed it very much and he was sopping up the remaining peanut sauce with every scrap of tortilla he had. But it was seriously messy. We both had peanut sauce all over our hands and had to eat with our heads jutted forward to keep from wearing it.
