Yield
8 servings (serving size: 1 wrap)

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Loved this. Served it warm with lots of sauteed veggies and warm (doubled) sauce in a tortilla. Simple and delicious.

One of the best chicken salad recipes ever. I leave the skin on the cucumber, otherwise, follow exactly. Works great with leftover chicken, especially after making stock.

Delicious! I bought a bag of broccoli slaw to replace the bell pepper and cucumber; the crunch was very satisfying.

Quite good. The cucumber sounded odd to me, but i couldn't taste it and think it just added moisture. Topped with shredded cabbage instead of lettuce. Only got 6 small wraps.

Great wrap! Though it can be a little messy, and making it all from scratch, start-to-finish, including clean-up, and a side of steamed broccoli tossed with Whole Foods ginger-miso dressing is close to 90 minutes. Also, rather than shred the chicken, I chopped it up into something akin to a fine dice. I think it gives more of a body to the wrap and shredding white meat can often lead to drier chicken.

I added some cooked vermicilli noodles chopped up to the end mixture and served it on lettuce wraps rather than tortillas. Big hit in my house. Even my 1 year old liked it!

This recipe was a big hit among family and friends. A great quick fix meal! Must agree with other readers and say that the sauce is delicious (I made it using a food processor). We used pre-cooked/pre shredded rotisserie chicken from Albertsons to make it even easier to fix. I mixed the chicken, cucumber, and pepper together but waiting to drizzle the sauce on each wrap individually to prevent it from getting soggy. We made our wraps using a spinach flavored tortilla which went perfectly! No overpowering tortilla flavor like others had mentioned with regular tortillas. Keeping the sauce separate made the leftovers just as yummy. A nice cold snack for lunch!! Have already made this twice and will continue to make.

Ate it over greens instead of in a wrap. Was amazing!
