I can’t believe that I am just now getting around to sharing this recipe with you all! These Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps are one of my husband’s (and my) FAVORITE meals ever. We make it very regularly, and it never gets old. It’s healthy, it’s delicious, it’s easy, and comes together in about 30 minutes making it the perfect dinner for a weeknight. It’s also great for meal prepping for lunches throughout the week.

The sweet and crunchy, spicy and peanutty sauce that this dish has makes you forget you are eating chicken and vegetables! I love anything that makes me forget it’s actually healthy! haha. We made a quick video to show you how easy it is!

I was first introduced to these by Lauren from the blog Tastes Better from Scratch. Her recipe is SO good and the first time I made it my husband immediately asked if we had the ingredients to make more! Over the years we have made it so often that we’ve heavily adapted it, as will happen with any recipe you make over and over. But I have to thank her for the introduction and I definitely recommend you try that one too!

This really is so easy to make! To save time on prep, a lot of the time I will buy carrots already julienned, onions pre-chopped, and I like to use ground chicken when I can find it. That is a HUGE time-saver! When I can’t find that, I will chop my chicken into big chunks and throw it in the food processor for a bit until I get small enough pieces. This works best if chicken is very cold. So if you are using frozen chicken breasts, do it before they are fully thawed.

The other thing I want you to know is which sweet chili sauce to buy. It should be in the Thai food section of the grocery store, and ideally the word ‘sweet’ should be there. There is ‘sweet chili sauce,’ and there is ‘chili garlic sauce.’ They are usually found near each other. Mix them up, and you will have a wayyyy spicier dish. Not that I know from experience or anything. If you can’t find it in your store, it’s on Amazon!
