Thai Peanut Sauce with Chicken Lettuce Cups

A really delicious no cook dipping sauce for simply roasted skewers of meat or seafood.

Perfect to drizzle over grilled chicken or shrimp filled lettuce cups or even thinly sliced pork or turkey tenderloin. 

I shred a rotisserie chicken for lettuce cups with carrots and scallions in butter lettuce - made PERFECT with a drizzle of this sauce. You will thank me on a hot August night! 

I made this big platter of filled cups for a party we had at our condo. I leave off the sauce so they remain crisp. My guests can pick up a wrap for their plate and sauce it before eating. They are PERFECT for a party. Try these!
