Dude, these things were awesome. Here’s a nice break from the ordinary meal! Though I’m calling them wraps, they were so big, it felt more like a burrito, but use whatever portions you like. You could easily feed two people with this recipe if you made smaller wraps.
Cut up 1/5 onion and a little bit of eggplant. If you don’t have eggplant, you can leave this out- I just had to use mine up.
Put the onions and eggplant in a heated, greased pan with a nice pinch of salt. After you get a bit of color on the onion, add some water chestnuts if you have them. It gives it a nice crunch at the end.
Add about 1/2 cup of diced carrots.
After a few minutes, add about 1/6 of a pepper. Once that cooks for another 2 or 3 minutes, take the veggies off the heat and put on a plate.
Cut up a chicken breast in very small pieces.
Add to a very, very hot greased pan and cook till it’s almost done.
Add the veggies back to the pan plus 3 or 4 cloves of chopped garlic.
After a minute or two, add a nice handful of fresh cilantro. This made all the difference!
You can go ahead and take that off the heat. You don’t really want to serve the guts when they’re piping hot. Let that mixture cool while you prepare your rinsed lettuce and sauce.
The sauce you’ll be using is very simple: In a saucepan, add a tablespoon or two of olive oil, a spoonful of peanut butter, maybe a tablespoon of soy sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, ginger powder, a splash of your favorite hot sauce, a splash of water, and a tablespoon or two of honey (or sugar if you don’t have it). Adjust the taste according to your preferences. Cook on the heat till things start to come together, but NOT too hot! The peanut butter will start to separate and look nasty. If that happens, just get a whisk and whip it. Whip it good.
Fill the lettuce with the chicken/veggie mixture and drizzle with the peanut sauce!
