Ingredients

  • Whole wheat wrap: Whole wheat wraps provide added fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They have a slightly nutty flavor and a soft, pliable texture, making them a perfect choice for enclosing the flavorful fillings of the Thai chicken wraps. Look for whole wheat wraps in the bread or tortilla section of your local grocery store.
  • Chicken Breast Strips: Precooked chicken breast strips are already cooked and ready to use, saving you time in the kitchen. These strips are convenient and versatile, providing a quick and easy protein option for your wraps. Look for high-quality pre cooked chicken breast strips that are tender, flavorful, and free from any artificial additives or preservatives.
  • Cilantro: Known for its vibrant and fresh taste, cilantro brings a delightful herbal note to the marinade. Make sure to wash the cilantro thoroughly and remove any tough stems before using.
  • Carrots: Julienne or shred some carrots to provide a satisfying crunch and a touch of natural sweetness to the wraps.
  • Spinach Leaves: Baby spinach leaves help provide a refreshing addition to the wrap filling, as well as a dose of nutrients and color!
  • Sweet Chili Sauce: This tangy and slightly spicy sauce is the perfect condiment to drizzle over the wraps. It adds a burst of flavor and enhances the overall Thai experience. I used G Hughes Sweet Chili sauce.

Swaps or Alternatives

If you're looking to make swaps or alternatives for our Thai chicken wrap recipe, here are some suggestions to cater to your dietary preferences or ingredient availability:

  • Protein alternatives: If you prefer a different protein source or want to make a vegetarian version, you can substitute the chicken breast with tofu, tempeh, or even cooked shrimp.
  • Gluten-free option: To make the recipe gluten-free, you can replace it with a gluten free alternative or a lettuce wrap. Ensure that the remaining ingredients, such as the Thai sweet chili sauce, are also gluten-free or use a certified gluten-free brand.
  • Vegetables: While spinach and carrots add a delightful crunch and vibrant colors, feel free to experiment with other vegetables. Thinly sliced cucumber, shredded cabbage, or bean sprouts can be excellent alternatives or additions to the wraps, adding freshness and texture.
  • Sauce variations: If you're looking to switch up the flavor profile, you can explore different sauces. Instead of sweet chili sauce, you can try peanut sauce, hoisin sauce, or a homemade Thai-inspired dressing with ingredients like fish sauce, lime juice, and chili.

Quick Tip(s)

Here are three quick tips for making the Thai chicken wrap recipe:

  1. Opt for pre-shredded carrots: Save time and effort by purchasing pre-shredded carrots from your local grocery store. This eliminates the need for peeling and grating carrots, making the prep work quicker and more convenient.
  2. Use pre-cooked chicken: To simplify the cooking process, consider using pre-cooked chicken breast strips. They are readily available in most grocery stores and can be easily heated up, saving you time and ensuring tender and flavorful chicken for your wraps.
  3. Make it ahead for an easy lunch option: Prepare the wrap the night before and you'll have a delicious and hassle-free meal ready to go!

FAQ’s

Can I use fresh chicken instead of pre-cooked chicken breast strips?

Absolutely! While this recipe uses pre-cooked chicken breast strips for convenience, you can certainly use fresh chicken breast instead. Simply marinate the raw chicken in the Thai marinade for at least 30 minutes before cooking it thoroughly on a grill pan or skillet. Ensure the chicken reaches a safe internal temperature of 165°F before using it in the wraps. 

Can I substitute the Thai sweet chili sauce?

Yes, you can substitute the Thai sweet chili sauce with other condiments that suit your taste preferences. Peanut sauce, hoisin sauce, or even a homemade Thai-inspired dressing can be used as alternatives. Feel free to experiment and choose a sauce that complements the flavors of the wraps to your liking.

Can I make this recipe vegetarian or vegan?

Absolutely! To make a vegetarian version, you can substitute the chicken with tofu or tempeh. Customize the fillings with a variety of vegetables and enjoy a delicious plant-based Thai wrap.

What sides should I serve with this wrap? 

If you're looking for easy and simple sides to serve with the wraps, consider options like a side of crispy Asian slaw or side of fresh fruit, such as sliced watermelon, pineapple chunks, or a tropical fruit salad, for a refreshing and light option. Additionally, a side of sweet potato fries or baked sweet potato wedges seasoned with a sprinkle of chili powder can add a delicious and satisfying element to the meal.
