Chicken and PB Lettuce Wraps

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Have you gone nuts searching for the perfect lettuce wrap? Let the search be over.


With just a little twist on the classic chicken wrap, your family will be going nutty over these Healthy Chicken and Peanut Butter Lettuce Wraps.

You see…I have a bit of a peanut butter obsession. It’s easy enough to squeeze peanut butter into a dessert but finding a way to incorporate it into breakfast, lunch, and dinner takes real talent.

Peanut butter tends to get a bad rap for being loaded with fat and calories.  But the key to eating healthy is moderation -- just eat a little of whatever you love.

These healthy wraps are full of chicken, apples, grapes, and onions and are tossed with a light honey and peanut butter sauce made with natural peanut butter.  It’s the perfect amount of peanut butter to give the wraps the nutty flavor I crave without overwhelming the dish with too much peanut butter flavor.

Easy Lettuce Wrap Recipe

Natural vs. Regular PB


Natural peanut butter has a runnier consistency than regular peanut butter, so it works great for making a sauce with a good consistency to toss the chicken filling.

But if you don’t have natural peanut butter on hand, don’t make a special run to the store; just melt regular peanut butter in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to get it to a consistency thin enough to incorporate into the filling.
