Ginger-Peanut Chicken-Salad Wraps

You can substitute slices of breast meat from prepackaged rotisserie chicken, which makes the preparation easier, but the dish will be a little higher in fat and sodium.

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 wrap)


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 6 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup chopped seeded peeled cucumber
  • 3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce


Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove the chicken from pan; cool. Shred the chicken into bite-size pieces. Place chicken, cucumber, and bell pepper in a large bowl; set aside.

Place sugar and the next 6 ingredients (sugar through garlic) in a blender, and process until smooth. Add peanut butter and water; process until smooth, scraping sides. Add peanut butter mixture to chicken mixture; stir well. Add cilantro, and toss well. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto each tortilla; top each serving with 1/2 cup lettuce, and roll up.
