I love changing things up for dinner.  As you know, it can be hard to get kids to eat something other than ground beef, noodles, or spaghetti.

Well, I finally found a recipe so completely different than what I typically serve at home, and the kids love it.

I was also a little leery about making this for my husband (he can be a picky eater). But he ate seconds and commented on how yummy they were…a total surprise to both of us.

Thai Chicken Wraps

Essentially, these Thai chicken wraps are sautéed chicken and broccoli slaw served in a tortilla with homemade peanut sauce.

The homemade peanut sauce is what sets these wraps apart from others. The sauce is really simple to make. All you do is heat peanut butter, sugar, water, vegetable oil, soy sauce and garlic in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved.  The result is a delicious sauce that you could easily eat by itself with a spoon.  Not to mention the fact that it is a home-run with the kids.

To make them a bit more festive, use red or green tortillas instead of plain ones OR serve them in a fun tortilla warmer.  Or, to go low carb or keto, serve in a lettuce wrap instead.

No matter how you serve them, these Thai Chicken Wraps will be loved by the entire family!  Our family ranks these right up there with our 6 Ingredient Stir Fry and Island Sweet and Sour Pork.

Broccoli slaw is similar to traditional coleslaw except that shredded broccoli is substituted for shredded cabbage.  Find bagged, prepared broccoli slaw mix in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.  Broccoli slaw mix contains shredded broccoli, carrots and red cabbage.

Use broccoli slaw mix to make a traditional mayonnaise based coleslaw. We love using it as the base for our stir fry meals with chicken, beef and even ground pork.
