Lazy Man’s Thai Chicken Wraps

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Lately I’ve made a few meals like Grape Tomato Pico di Gallo and Open Faced Chicken Sammies that use leftover chicken and make dinner a little bit easier during the week. Are you still looking for more ways to use the grilled chicken breasts that you made on Sunday? I’ve got a few more recipes coming up to help out.

My love for all things Thai continues with this easy version of wraps. I love the peanutty spring rolls that you can get in the rice paper wraps with the chicken and carrots, but honestly who keeps rice wraps on hand waiting for the moment when you want to make spring rolls.

Plus I’m not exactly sure I could figure out how to wrap them and have them turn out in spring roll shape and not some mangled up version resembling a taco. I’ve had lettuce wraps before so I decided to try spring rolls in a lazy form using cabbage leaves.

Regular cabbage is kinda tough if you don’t shred it, but napa cabbage has more tender leaves that were perfect to use here. You can also use romaine leaves or other larger lettuce leaves. I opted to use PB2 in the wraps since I was worried that peanut butter would be too sticky but I wanted the peanut flavor.

Lazy Man’s Thai Chicken Wraps Thai Chicken Wraps

  • 12 oz grilled chicken breast
  • 12 oz baby carrots
  • 2 Tbsp PB2 or peanut flour
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Drizzle of sriracha
  • 1 head napa cabbage

Cut the chicken breast into bite sized pieces or slightly smaller. Shred the carrots in a food processor or grate them by hand if you have the patience. I don’t, so I used the food processor. You can also buy pre-shredded carrots instead.

Mix the chicken, carrots, and the rest of the ingredients through the cilantro in a bowl until well mixed. Slice the stem end off the head of cabbage and separate the leaves. Serve the chicken mixture with the leaves to make wraps. Drizzle with sriracha to taste.

Makes 4 servings at 189 calories each – 24g protein, 19g carbs, and 3g fat.

I just spooned some of the chicken filling into the center of a leaf and folded around the filling. I call these the lazy man’s thai chicken wraps for this very reason. Can’t get much easier than that.

This worked perfectly for lunch leftovers too. I portioned 2 servings into plastic containers and dropped a few cabbage leaves into a plastic bag. At lunchtime I just shook the container to mix and enjoyed.
