These are so yummy! They taste really close to the lettuce wraps that you can order from that famous Asian restaurant chain. The number of servings will depend on if this is an appetizer or main course for you and how big you make them. If an appetizer, then maybe 6 servings; if a main dish, then 4 servings.

We made this for our Grey Cup Party and it was a huge hit! The spice level is very pleasing for everyone but if it was just my husband and I eating it I would definitely make it much more spicy. Read More

Very good I choose to add the peanut butter and l/3 cup of unsalted peanuts directly into the chicken mixture. With heat on low melted the peanut butter and then removed from heat and served sprinkling the green onions and grated carrots on top. Read More

Loved this recipe. I used romaine lettuce and green pepper instead of red but I doubt that made that much of a difference. Definitely liked the dipping sauce directly on top of the chicken mixture. Will make again! Read More

This recipe is easy and delicious. I only gave it four stars because I used low sodium soy sauce rather than regular. I also added some extra hot sauce to the chicken because we like it spicy. The peanut sauce is delicious and the onion and cilantro really make the wraps pop. Even better the second day if you have leftovers. Thanks or the great recipe! Read More

We (my husband and I) absolutely love this recipe. Now that i have made it a few times I have done it with ground chicken leftover cut up chicken from a whole smoked chicken we cooked on out smoker and also vegetarian because our neighbor is a vegetarian and all variations were very good. Even the vegetarian way. We like this best with the ground chicken and when making the peanut butter sauce we use Adams all natural chunky PB and add much more hot water than it calls for. I also add a little bit of sesame oil and sriracha sauce to give it a little kick. I don't use the recommended amount of soy sauce in it either - I use way less(in the pb sauce and in the meat mixture both)because alot of people said it was too salty in the reviews. I will definitely continue to make this Read More

This was great - quick easy and let me use ingredients I had on hand. I sauted diced chicken and onion then added diced zucchini and red bell pepper. Then added soy sauce rice vinegar ground ginger chili oil (so no need for Tabasco) and chunky peanut butter. Simmered on low adding a bit of water as needed then served over a bed of lettuce. A hit with the whole family. Read More
