Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps – Refreshing and Light!
After all the binge eating during the holiday season, I crave for light and refreshing Asian food. Recipes that are super delicious, easy to make, and satisfy my appetite like no other. I am talking about Thai lettuce wraps made with chicken and served with the ever appetizing and addictive Thai sweet chili sauce.
While I love the regular lettuce wraps (click link for my recipe), I will be honest – they have nothing on these Thai lettuce wraps. Refreshing, check. Healthy, check. Out-of-this-world amazeballs recipe, check check and check!
Tips on How to Make Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps
So what are the secrets? Ground chicken, cashew nuts, the seasonings, and the sauce. You can’t make good Thai food if you don’t use fish sauce and sweet soy sauce. They are the pillars in Thai recipes (click link to check all my Thai dishes). The bottled sweet chili sauce can be purchased at any regular grocery stores or Asian stores these days, but out of the bottle, it’s too sweet and sticky. I jazzed it up with extra lime juice and some chopped cilantro, and speckled with sesame seeds.
For the leaves, you can use butter lettuce like I do, or you can get iceberg lettuce, which gives an extra crisp to the bite and more “crunch” to the Thai lettuce wraps. These are absolutely scrumptious and mouthwatering, and I will have no problem sticking to my new year’s resolution and Thai chicken lettuce wraps every day.
