Make

  1. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and season with some salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Add second part of oil and then chicken. Sear chicken on both sides until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes total.
  3. Warm wraps according to package directions. Give peanut sauce a stir (note: if made ahead and refrigerated, you may need to add a splash of water to thin it out).
  4. Assemble wraps by topping each with slaw, chicken and some peanut sauce (reserve half if doubled).
  5. Serve wraps with cucumber sticks on the side. Dip the cucumber sticks in some peanut sauce if you’d like.

Made as bowls With brown rice instead of wraps, doubled the peanut sauce for my sauce loving family, and served with the smoothie from the paleo version. Easy, tasty and everyone ate it!

Made the veggie version & the chicken wraps. Double the peanut to make on separate nights. Used red cabbage - yum.

Love the peanut sauce. As per a previous review, we also added sriracha to it which really enhanced the flavor. We added less sugar to the cabbage slaw and it was not missed.

It was a tad bland for me so I used sriracha and it was instant magic.
