Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce

I’d like to have a moment of silence for summer, preferably one in which my mouth is far too full of Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce to speak.

Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce. An easy and healthy chicken wrap recipe that's perfect for weeknight dinner or to pack for lunch

I know that school is back in session for many, the sun is setting earlier, and pumpkin is making appearances in my Pinterest feed. I’ve even felt fleeting urges to don my worn-out collegiate hoodies to watch football (and eat dip). I’ve even baked Football-Shaped Peanut Butter Blondies (recipe coming Friday!), for which I would repent, except that they are so cute, and I don’t apologize for killer peanut butter chocolate desserts on principle. No one seems to mind.

Still, before we launch into a full-scale squash-palooza and bust out the decorative scarves, I want to take a few moments to step out and savor the warm weather, fresh produce, and still relatively long days. Summer isn’t over yet, thank goodness.


Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce. Ready in only 30 minutes and perfect for lunch or dinner

Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce. Healthy, flavorful and ready to go in only 30 minutes!

I’m often guilty of wishing away the current moment in anticipation of seasons to come, but I know that in just a few short weeks, I’ll be longing for a refrigerator filled with fresh blueberries and nights warm enough to eat dinner with Ben on the porch without needing to wrap myself in a blanket like a human burrito. While summer is still here, let’s spend as much time as we can out of the kitchen and in our backyards, sharing simple meals with our family and friends.

These Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce are exactly the sort of recipe I love for summer nights when I’d rather be on our porch than in front of my stove. They don’t require turning on the oven, are easy to transport, and come together in a less than 30 minutes. They’re also perfect for busy weeknights, and if you are among the families who have headed back to school, they’re super handy to pack for lunch too.

Assuming, however, that you have time for a little more outdoor entertaining, here are a few of my favorite tips, all of which are ideally suited to these smart, Thai peanut-sauced Asian Chicken Wraps.

  • Choose foods that are easy to hold and carry around. Guests are often up moving and chatting, so recipes that can easily be eaten while standing (and don’t require silverware) are a great choice.
  • To save yourself the stress of last-minute details, pick recipes you can make ahead. The filling for these Asian Chicken Wraps can be made up to a day in advance, and the wraps rolled and refrigerated a few hours before the party starts.
  • Pick items that taste great at room temperature so you aren’t worried about trying to keep them hot. Again, a win for Asian Chicken Wraps.
  • Keep your ingredient prep to a minimum. Less fuss, more party, and a serious Asian Chicken Wrap plus point.

Although I love to cook, I must confess that one part of the meal prep process I dread is chopping. A handful of veggies is fine, but recipes that require a solid 20 minutes of cubing and dicing exasperate me, particularly on weeknights when I’m starving and rushing to finish cooking dinner before I inhale an entire bag of Tostitos.

Healthy Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce

Thanks to shortcut ingredients like prepared broccoli slaw and shelled edamame, these Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce require very little ingredient prep. For the chicken, I used Just BARE Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Fillets, which in addition to being all natural and antibiotic free are so neatly trimmed before they are packaged, all I need to do to prep them for the chicken wraps is cut them into a quick dice. The diced chicken sautés in fewer than five minutes and make the wraps hearty and filling.

The Best Ever Thai Peanut Sauce

The final star of our dish is the Thai peanut sauce itself. A sweet and tangy blend of creamy peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, and a hit of ginger and Sriracha, this bright, zippy peanut sauce makes the wraps absolutely addictive. It also happens to taste excellent licked directly off the back of a spoon, not that I would know anything about that.

Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce

Whether it’s with a gaggle of your gal pals, your immediate family, or your loyal pup, I hope you find time to gather and savor the sweet summer moments that remain with those you love. Wishing you an Asian Chicken Wrap for one hand, a cold brew for another, and a brilliant sunset to light the evening sky.

Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce

Packed with chicken, carrots, edamame, and an addictive Thai peanut sauce, these healthy Asian chicken wraps are a fast and delicious dinner or lunch.

Yield: 4 wraps

Total Time: 30 minutes


For the Sauce

  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha or similar spicy chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

For the Chicken Wraps

  • 14 ounces Just BARE Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Fillets (about 2 medium breasts)
  • 1 tablespoon canola or grapeseed oil, divided
  • 2 cups broccoli slaw
  • 1 cup shelled edamame, thawed if frozen
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted salted peanuts, chopped
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas


  1. In a small bowl, stir together all of the sauce ingredients: peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, Sriracha, ginger, and lime. Set aside.
  2. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Heat half of the oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium high. Once the oil is shimmering, add the chicken (be careful as the oil may splatter), and sauté the chicken until fully cooked, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a bowl and blot away any excess oil. To the bowl, add 1/4 cup of the peanut sauce, then toss to coat the chicken. Reserve the rest of the sauce for serving.
  3. To the same skillet in which you cooked the chicken, add the remaining oil and let warm for 30 seconds. Add the broccoli slaw, edamame, carrots, and half of the green onions and sauté until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. To assemble wraps, spread a spoonful of the reserved sauce on each tortilla. Top with the chicken, vegetables, chopped peanuts, remaining green onions, and fresh cilantro. Wrap and enjoy warm or at room temperature.

Filling can be prepared up to 1 day in advance. Assembled wraps can be made up to 4 hours in advance and stored in the refrigerator (or your lunch box) until ready to serve.

  1. I’m sorry, but I’ve already been squashing and decorative scarf-ing ALL THE THINGS.
    BUTBUTBUT, I’ll definitely hold onto summer one last bite because of these wraps. Thai peanut is EVERYTHING. Pinned!

  2. I will gladly take a moment of silence for summer. It went to fast!! Now, pass me one of these wraps!

  3. While I’ve never been a big fan of outdoor dining (I can’t deal with all the bugs!), I’m certainly sad to see summer starting to wind down. These wraps look like the perfect summertime dinner – although I’d be happy to eat them year round! I love how colorful they are.

  5. I’m so ready for fall, but I can definitely hold out one week till September for these delicious wraps :) Love all the colors!

  6. I am really loving any sort of thai-style dishes these last few months! These wraps look amazing! I’m trying to focus on enjoying the last of summer but man, I am sooo craving fall! Too much humidity!

  7. I always want to slurp up all the peanut sauce with a spoon. It’s so delicious. And when I have something to dip into it, the experience is just so much better. This looks incredible. 
    And I’ve been holding onto summer with a crazy vise-like grip, but being a teacher and all, I’m gonna have to give up on it. So saaaaaaaad.

  8. Living in Arizona, it seems that summer will never end! But I like it that way!! :) Your wraps look like the perfect don’t-heat-up-the-kitchen for today’s 107 degree weather! Can’t wait to try them. 

  9. Oh these look oh so yummy!

  10. Packed these for the week for my boyfriend and I… a delicious lunch for a long work week!

  11. Made these for lunch yesterday, very tasty ! Really enjoyed the flavors and very easy to make. Thanks 😊

  12. My boyfriend and I had these for dinner tonight. While he’s usually pretty complimentary of the dishes I make, he all out raved about this one. (For the record, I loved them, too!) The sauce is AMAZING! As he was washing the dishes, he wistfully said, “That might be the best Thai peanut sauce I’ve ever had.” Thanks for a delicious and memorable dish! I’m sure it’ll become a regular in our rotation. 

  13. Excellent recipe. I will use a little less peanut butter next time, it was slightly overpowering for my taste, but this peanut sauce is so good. Use freshly ground or natural peanut butter.
