Thai Chicken Wraps

Thai Chicken Wraps, Salad and Mango Juice
There was also a dessert (not pictured), but I was too full to eat it.
Do you know that expression, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach? Well I think that definitely applies to women too. There is something about a delicious dinner, and nice presentation, that just melts my heart. If you want to impress that special someone, definitely make these wraps!

This meal was so yummy, I may have asked S to marry me after. I definitely got down on one knee. I am not sure what happened after that as I was a bit delirious, overtaken with love and acting kind of goofy.  It occurs to me that If I did propose, I never got an answer! Hmm.. Anyway, yes these are THAT GOOD!

S actually wanted to make some wraps for a potluck with his friends and so this was a bit of a trial run. He added a sauce to them the second time around and they were even better.  I'm happy to be the test kitchen anytime ;)

I'm hoping to share some of S's recipes because they are so yummy!


- fresh cilantro
- 4 tablespoons curry paste
- fresh chillies
- 1 tsp lime zest
- juice from 2 limes

skinless boneless chicken thighs cut into thin strips

Rest of wraps
- white wraps
- julienne carrots
- cucumbers
- sweet potato noodles
- romaine lettuce
- green onion finely chopped
- peanuts, toasted and crushed
- homemade peanut sauce (peanut butter, oyster sauce, crushed nuts, salt and pepper to taste) or bought peanut satay sauce

- marinate chicken 4h up to overnight
- cook chicken in skillet on medium high until cooked through
- put aside chicken to cool
- cook sweet potato noodles until al dente
- prepare other ingredients
- make peanut sauce
- do a mise-en-place, put wrap, thin later of peanut sauce, add carrots, cucumbers noodles, peanuts, green onions, chicken and wrap! for the extra fancy sealing of the wrap without a tooth pick, grill closure in skillet to cook it shut.
