I was going to call these peanut chicken lettuce wraps but while eating them I decided you could fill them with almost anything and it wouldn’t really matter.  All that matters is the ginger peanut sauce.  The colorful array of veggies adds a nice cool crunch, the fresh herbs add some great flavor, and you can add your protein of choice – chicken, shrimp, tofu, whatevs.  But the peanut sauce is what matters.  The peanut sauce is key.  You might want to make a double batch.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

To be honest I was running late the day I made these so I picked up a rotisserie chicken to use as my protein, and it made these super easy.  All I had to do was cut up some vegetables and whisk together the sauce.  So if you go that route, this is a no cook meal that takes less than 20 minutes.  Perfect for days that you need to get something delicious and healthy on the table in a short amount of time, and also perfect for hot days when you don’t want to turn on the oven.  Those days are coming guys.  Did you know it is supposed to be 80 degrees this week in Seattle?  It is April.  Who knows what summer will be like.

But if you don’t want to use a rotisserie chicken you can grill some chicken, saute some shrimp, make some tofu using my best tofu recipe, or just stuff these full of veggies, drizzle on the sauce and call it good.

These quick and easy Ginger Peanut Lettuce Wraps are fresh and flavorful!

  1. Made these last night with fresh basil, mint and cilantro from my garden and they were absolutely delicious. The peanut sauce is the best I have ever had! I used long chilled crispy romaine lettuce over butter lettuce because that is what I had and I liked the firmness better for handling. A squeeze of lime and crunchy peanuts on top gave them Thai goodness. Yummy! Thank you for the recipe.

  2. I basically drink peanut sauce. I try to put it on things… but really, I just want the sauce. These look sooo perfect. Such a good vehicle for delicious peanutty sauce to make its way in to my mouth. Will have to give them a go 😀

    1. Amanda – me too! I kind of think of the lettuce wraps as a vessel to get more peanut sauce in my mouth also 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    Love, Love, Love. I love that it’s healthy. I love the peanut sauce. I love that you can customise your protein (I’m thinking minced pork). I love that there’s just a little heat from the chilli sauce. I’m wondering if I could get both of my kids to eat it – I know one will fall straight in love with it and the other – all of those flavours wrapped up together might just convince her that those lettuce leaves are not so bad after all.

    1. Pork sounds great too! I really think the peanut sauce will make a veggie lover out of even the pickiest eater. Thanks Jane!

  4. Love quick and easy lettuce wraps like these.. definitely my favourite thing to make when the weather is getting warmer.

  5. I love those tiny little heads of lettuce. So cute and perfect for lettuce wraps. Using rotisserie chicken is a great hack. I do it all the time! Busy with two kids and a traveling hubby, it’s a must! These little wraps are perfect for using up leftover veggies too. I always have a half of something left after making meals. I hate throwing it away so I usually feed it to my inlaw’s goat if it gets overly ripe.

  6. 5 stars
    These look sooooo yummy! Nothing beats homemade peanut sauce, I gotta try this one – ginger is genius!!

    These are perfect for my diet too
