How to Make Thai Chicken Wraps

Our tasty Thai chicken wraps are loaded with nutritious ingredients and flavor!

First, combine the Thai Peanut Sauce ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the Thai Spice blend ingredients.

Once you’ve combined your spice blend, cover the chicken in oil, lime juice, and douse with the seasoning. Allow the chicken to marinate while you heat a pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken to the pan and cook for about 10 minutes, or until it’s browned and cooked through. Remove from the heat and allow it to sit.

Meanwhile, stack your veggies on each wrap. Slice the chicken and place it in the wrap. Then, drizzle with peanut sauce, top with cilantro, and enjoy!
