This was very tasty! I found the sauce ended up being a little too saucy, but nothing that can't be fixed up for next time. I also added the fresh cilantro as well and it really brightened up the flavor! I'll try basil, as someone else suggested, tomorrow. I do think next time I'll add a little lime juice and zest as it seemed to be missing a little zip. But this had definitely made it on to my lunch rotation. I had it with CL's Thai Tomato Soup and it was a great combo!
Chicken Saté Wraps

Decent. I doctored this recipe a good amount by adding fish sauce, garlic, ginger, turmeric, and extra red pepper and curry powder, and still found it a bit bland. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just not that special. It would benefit a lot from a squeeze of fresh lime juice and some chopped cilantro, which I don't have. Also, I grilled my own chicken and chopped the carrots and cabbage by hand, so maybe it's just that I'm disappointed because I put so much work into it. If I had thrown together some rotisserie chicken and bagged matchstick carrots, I might feel differently. I also have the feeling that it might be better after sitting in the fridge overnight. My advice: try this recipe, but don't invest a lot in it.

My boyfriend couldn't stop telling me how good this was and I couldn't agree more. This one is a keeper. I served it warm in a whole wheat tortilla and added cilantro and a lil more onion and crushed red pepper. And I had it the next day for lunch served cold. Very good. And not messy.

Tasty, quick and easy. I used crunchy peanut butter and added some ginger, more red pepper and sriacha. I also threw in some lime juice and cilantro at the end. Instead of rotisserie chicken I just bought a 1/2 lb of chicken breast thin sliced from the deli which I chopped up into small squares. I used some preshredded carrots I had in my fridge along with the angel slaw. This recipe took me like 10 min to throw together. I used spring roll wrappers for mine and some left over flour tortillas for my DH. I would definitely make this again, it makes a perfect make ahead lunch.

This is a very good, easy recipe. I roasted boneless, skinless chicken breast in the oven because I didn't have a rotisserie chicken. I was also tempted to make extra peanut sauce for the slaw, but I kept to the recipe and it was good. It's a good recipe that I would have no problem making for guests if that's what they feel like, but it didn't blow my socks off, and it's not "fancy" enough for a special occassion. My husband was reluctant to try it, but he eventually caved and really liked it. I had one serving, and he ate the rest.

Very good! Very quick if you use left over rotisserie chicken and already cut carrots. I used reduced fat peanuts butter to cut the fat a little bit which worked just fine. But I think next time I will decrease the amount of peanut butter by 1 tbsp. I also added a layer of fresh basil before I topped it with the slaw. Yum!

fun change of pace for lunch, and i love that you can make the filling the night before and just stuff a wrap and go in the morning. i definitely recommend shredding carrots in the food processor. i added extra red pepper flakes and fresh grated ginger after reading reviews that warned of blandness and i thought the flavor was excellent!

Very good wrap. I find a whole chicken gets you about three and a half to four cups of meat, so plan accordingly. I also added bean sprouts and some thinly sliced red bell peppers and used a larger, whole wheat wrap...which basically gave me a single meal in one neat package. Overall the thing is tasty, decently cheap, and quite quick to make. Leftovers made good lunch for days afterwards.

This has become one of my go-to recipes. It is very simple and delicious. I use any onion I have on hand though and have never used green onion. I also do not use the angel hair slaw.

This was good; I follwed the recipe except I used spring roll skins in place of the tortillas as they stay together better for travel in a lunch box. I will make this again as a good alternative to the normal sandwich I have been taking.

I loved this recipe. I cooked the chicken the day before in the slow-cooker with the 'sauce' (coconut milk, peanut butter and spices) The next day I added carrots, onions and about 1/2 cup warm peanut butter to make everything stick together. Wrapped and topped with cabbage as instructed... delicious. I couldn't stop eating the chicken mixture as I was making the wraps.

My husband and I really liked this recipe. It was the perfect thing for a packed lunch during a day out shopping. I made the wraps up the night before and used finely sliced cabbage. It was quick and easy, the list of ingredients reflects that. I will be making this again and again. I agree that fresh cilantro would be good in the wrap, but I really thought it was tasty as is too!

i thought this was a pretty good start and great concept but a bit bland. i used red curry paste then added ginger, garlic, golden raisins, cilantro & chopped peanuts. it's great base recipe very open to additions.
