thai peanut chicken wraps

This past week has been, for lack of a better word, stupid.

Last Monday, I was all pumped up, getting ready to go to the gym, when I slipped and fell on my deck. Last weekend was super stormy and the deck obviously got slippery and icky, but I obviously didn’t notice. Always moving too fast for my own good.

I hit my tailbone pretty hard and have spent the rest of this week limping around and “ow”-ing everytime I have to lean over or pick something up. Needless to say, I can’t go to the gym or do a lot of other things, but I can make a bomb-ass wrap to distract from the discomfort of my tailbone. If only momentarily.

Anyway. Onto the wrap. This wrap is fresh and crunchy, with a spicy-sweet peanut sauce to top it off with. This wrap is definitely a welcome distraction.

1 teaspoon chile garlic paste

For the wraps:
2 tortillas
6 oz cooked chicken breast, sliced
1/4 bell pepper, sliced

Combine all ingredients for sauce in small bowl. Reserve one tablespoon sauce and set aside.

Pour remaining sauce in small skillet, add chicken and mix to coat chicken with sauce. Cook  over medium heat until chicken is warmed and sauce has thickened.

In each wrap, place half of the sliced bell peppers, snap peas, and carrot ribbons. Place half of chicken in each wrap and top with lettuce and green onions. Drizzle reserved sauce over both wraps, roll up, cut in half, and enjoy!

My wraps always want to unroll themselves, so I recommend either using toothpicks in each half or wrapping the whole thing in foil (unless you are like me, and have silver fillings, and the thought of foil anywhere near your teeth makes you want to die. Then stick with the toothpicks).
