It isn't any tastier, easier or faster than a stir fry of Thai peanut sauced chicken, carrot and scallion stuffed in big crisp leaves of iceberg lettuce. Boom.

I use House of Tsang bottled sauces as they are excellent.

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 large carrot, cut into fine julienne strips
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs, thinly sliced - TIP: freeze them for about an hour and they will be easier to slice
  • 1/4 cup bottled peanut sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dry roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 large head of iceberg lettuce, leaves separated
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir fry the carrot, garlic and green onion until softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove to small bowl and set aside.
  • Heat remaining oil over high, stir fry the chicken until browned and just cooked through.
  • Add the sauteed carrot mixture and peanut sauce to the pan - cook until the sauce thickens, 1 to 2 minutes and fold in the peanuts.
  • To eat, place some of the sauced chicken in a lettuce leaf.
