Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps

An easy peanut chicken Lettuce Wraps topped with a light peanut sauce. Made in under 20 minutes!


This is also probably the easiest meal you could ever make.

Even better yet – These wraps go from fridge to table in under 20 minutes. That means these officially meet all the requirements for a good healthy meal in our house: Easy. Check. Quick. Check. Delicious. CHECK.

If you use gluten free soy sauce, these wraps could also be made gluten free!


You definitely don’t have to top the wraps with the peanut sauce, but in my opinion, that’s the only way to go. The sauce alone is like crack. It can take any dish to a new level. Salads, noodles, rice, and lettuce wraps! That being said, if you do choose to top the wraps with the peanut sauce and don’t end up using it all up, you could easily use the rest up for lunch the next day on top of a salad or cucumber noodles.
