When I moved out on my own, my mom gave me Betty Crocker's Quick & Easy Cookbook. I immediately turned to the desserts section (because that's what anyone who is sane does, right?), but after my initial sugar fixation I decided to fix these snappy Thai wraps (which I am sure would be an abomination to anyone who is really from Thailand). Oh well; they are yummy in my provincial Pennsylvanian eyes.
Note: You cannot mess these up. Add as much cabbage (coleslaw mix) as you feel comfortable with, and feel free to reserve some of the dressing mixture for dipping.
Thai Chicken Wraps
- 1 cup Asian dressing (I use Newman's Own Asian Sesame Ginger dressing)
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 lb chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
- 5-6 cups (one bag) coleslaw mix (sliced cabbage)
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 3 tablespoons chopped peanuts (optional)
- flour tortillas
Add the following to the skillet: 1/2 of dressing mixture, coleslaw mix, bell pepper, peanuts and cilantro.
Coat mixture well and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until mixture softens slightly. Add chicken to mixture and serve in flour tortillas.
