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.

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! 


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sambal chili paste, or chili garlic sauce - see image below - sambal is available in most grocery stores or online
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk

  • In a blender or food processor, combine peanut butter, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, and sambal until smooth. Add lime juice to taste.
  • With machine running, add coconut milk and then enough water until sauce reaches desired consistency.
