Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps

Asian Thai Peanut Chicken wraps with spicy chili-lime peanut sauce.. Friends, even saying this make me drool! I love adding peanuts in lot of savory preparations. The sweetness of peanut goes very well with heat of chili and tang of lime.. and I'm kinda addicted to it. 

So, today I decided to share with you one of my favorite Asian chicken entrée - Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps, served as appetizer!

A platter of Peanut-y Chicken wraps not just looks delicious, but it disappears super fast from party buffet table! Good things is - these wraps are supper easy to assemble.

Will you believe? Just 20 minutes for this big platter!! Plus 5 minutes of slicing and arranging on platter before party. How cool is that?!

Whenever I'm hosting a party, previous night, I make a big batch of Peanut chicken wraps (not sliced, just wraps). Just before guest start arriving, I cut half of wraps to bite size pinwheels and leave rest half in refrigerator. Once, first half starts circulating... I slice the remaining for re-fill. Often, my friends will happily cut pinwheels while chit-chatting! Now, what else do I need!?! In my books, cooking or eating, food is the best way of entertaining! Isn't it?!

Oh, and if I get lucky, I save (actually hide) 1-2 wraps in fridge, those make excellent Monday lunch for tired couple. :)

I'm sure you thinking, 25 minutes, that's not possible! What if I tell you, I even cook chicken in this time. So, if you use pre-cooked chicken, these wraps even faster to get ready. How do I do it?

Well, I make stove work parallel to my work. While chicken cooks in the pan, I don't stand next to it. Rather, assemble the peanut sauce ingredients.

One more smart way to work less for party is: buy pre-cut veggies. A batch of sliced crunchy veggies such as carrots, red cabbage, celery, broccolini, and handful of sprouts make assembling wrap super quick. Bonus? Veggies keep wraps healthy and crunchy!

Veggie Wraps for Vegetarian Guests: To take care of my health-conscious vegetarian guests... I make a few wraps vegetarian. I take out 1/2 cup of veggie mixture before adding chicken. Later I mix fried tofu in veggies, or just use veggie filling and a different color tortillas. By color coding wraps, it is easier to serve wraps in two platters and tell guests which ones are vegetarian. sounds good! Isn't it?
