These Thai Chicken Wraps with a homemade peanut sauce and boneless chicken breasts are an easy weeknight dinner option that the entire family will love.
This is another recipe from Barbara’s college days when she lived in Glenwood – a cooperative on Purdue’s campus. Like the Cheesy Mexican Chicken, these Thai Chicken Wraps with peanut sauce were in the top five favorite recipes for most of Barbara’s housemates. Everyone showed up for lunch when they made these.
The funny thing about her Glenwood recipes is that Barbara has to divide each recipe by six since the original recipes make huge portions to feed more than 30 girls.
Thai Chicken Wraps
The homemade peanut sauce is what sets these wraps apart from others.
No matter how you serve them, these Thai Chicken Wraps will be loved by the entire family!
Barbara was a little leery about making this for her husband (he can be a picky eater). But he ate seconds and commented on how yummy they were…a total surprise to both of them.
