for the chicken-
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced or 1/4 teaspoon dried ginger powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
for the wraps-
  • head lettuce
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 cups cooked rice
for the peanut sauce-
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ginger, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
In a medium dish, combine all the ingredients for the chicken marinade: olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame oil. Stir. Add your chicken breasts to the dish and flip a few times to coat. Refrigerate for 20 minutes, flipping the chicken half way through.

While the chicken is marinating, make your peanut sauce. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate until needed.

Cook your rice according to the package.

Then prep your carrots, cucumbers, and lettuce.

Once your chicken is done marinating, heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken along with the marinade and saute until fully cooked, about 10 minutes per side. Let the chicken sit for 5 minutes before slicing into thin strips.

Set each ingredient up in a bowl or serving dish, and have everybody make their own wrap.
