These quick and easy chicken wraps are loaded with great flavors! Just 6 easy ingredients plus a homemade Thai peanut sauce, and you’re good to go!
Great meals usually take a while to make, but not these amazing spicy Thai Peanut chicken wraps! They’re ready before you know it, thanks to some help from the frozen foods department, but could easily be adapted and made 100% homemade.

So obviously I love to cook, (otherwise why would I be writing this on a food blog? 😉 ), but I don’t always love to cook. Some nights, just the thought of cooking a big meal, turning on the hot oven or stove and spending 30 minutes or more in the kitchen, well it just makes me tired thinking about it! On those nights we either order some takeout, eat some leftovers, or I whip up a quick and convenient light dinner 🙂
One of my favorite meal solutions is to use Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets and pair them with some Birds Eye Protein Blends! Quick and easy, yet still healthy and nutritious 🙂 No need to turn on your oven or fire up your stovetop, just pop them in the microwave. Tyson grilled & ready chicken breast fillets contain no preservatives, are fully cooked and are 98% fat free! Pair that with some Birds Eye protein blends, my favorite is the California blend, and you have yourself a super protein packed meal!
Now you could heat these up and serve them as is… they’re delicious all on their own! But you know how I love my food flavor packed, so I combined the two and made a spicy Thai peanut chicken wrap with a quick and easy Thai peanut sauce 🙂
I love the flavor of this sauce! Don’t let the longer ingredient list scare you… you can whip this sauce together in about 5 minutes 🙂 I adapted this recipe a little from Ellie Krieger’s recipe on the Food Network. Just add the ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk until combined. If you want a super smooth sauce, you could process it in the blender or food processor. I didn’t have the time or energy to clean out my blender, so I just whisked the sauce 🙂
Now to make your wrap you’ll need a tortilla (flour, whole-wheat, etc), chicken breast (cut into strips), shredded purple cabbage, shredded carrots, cilantro leaves and Birds Eye California Style Protein Blends. 6 ingredients + your homemade sauce and you’ll have yourself a gourmet healthy dinner or lunch!
These wraps would also be great to take on the road… to a park, for a picnic, or just a quick bite to eat while you run some errands. Also, you can adjust the spiciness to your tastes, as it stands, it’s not all that spicy.
Whew, now I’m hungry and I’m going to have to make one of these wraps for lunch!
