Peanut Butter Chicken Wraps
Strange title to this post.
Peanut butter and chicken?
Why not? If you can use peanut butter in sesame noodles, then why not with chicken?
I made a delicious peanut butter dipping sauce for chicken satay last night and had some leftover. Why throw it away, when a sandwich was waiting to be slathered with it the next day.
I also tried flax roll ups for the first time, and they were pretty good. Not a tortilla wrap filled with fat, but a low-fat, high fiber lavash type of bread made with flax seed meal (sounds appealing, doesn't it?). Most major supermarkets & health food chains sell them if you are interested.
Chicken Wraps with Peanut Butter Sauce: makes 2 wraps for lunch
1 cup of shredded cooked chicken
handful of fresh spinach leaves
handful of slivered red bell pepper
lavash bread or wrap for rolling
Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce:
2 tbsp creamy style peanut butter
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Asian sesame oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
Stir dressing together with a fork until smooth.
Lay out the wraps and spread the peanut sauce all over.
Lay the chicken, spinach and red bell pepper pieces down the center and roll!
Slice the rolls in half and enjoy!
I usually don't like roll ups because the bread tastes "raw" to me. I'll look for these Flax Roll Ups and make mine with cilantro too. What a great departure from mayonnaise. I only have chunky peanut butter but I think that would add an extra dimension. Thanks for a great lunch idea.
These flax rollups were soft and really nice. Yes, Damascus Bakery.....Shop Rite sells them.
