Thai Chicken Coconut Wraps (GF, THM Friendly)

OOOO, this is so good, I just wanna kiss myself sometimes when I come up with amazing flavor compliments. My good friend gave me a couple of Paleo Wraps (affiliate link) to experiment with and I came up with something AMAZING!!  The reviews on these guys suggested pairing them with an Asian taste. Afterall, the coconut flavor is there. Some say it is not strong, but if it is made of coconut meat, coconut water, and coconut oil, it is gonna taste like coconut. People can say it does not, but they would be lying. So, let's work with that coconutty goodness!

Thai Coconut Wraps



(THM Friendly, S Meal: Less than 10 carbs per serving)
2 cooked chicken breasts, chopped
1 carrot thinly grated
1 bunch cilantro
1 cucumber, diced
2-3 green onions, diced
1 oz chopped peanuts
Any other veggies you want to add....go for it! (Broccoli slaw would be awesome in this)
Mix all these ingredients together and chill.

Sauce:
4 T PB Fit (defatted peanut butter powder)
4 T Soy Sauce (low sodium is best, use Liquid Aminos for GF)
2 T Water
2 T coconut vinegar (or whichever you have on hand)
2 T Oil  (liquid coconut oil is great)
Juice of one lime
1/2 t ginger
1/2 t garlic powder
2 T xylitol (powdered is best here)
1/2 t of Glucomannan Powder  (affiliate link) This is optional, but thicker sauce is better for this.

Add all sauce ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Wait one min, Then blend again. As this sauce sits, it will thicken slightly and be a great sauce for a chicken salad.
Mix up as much sauce as you want on the salad, add a handful of peanuts and serve in coconut wraps or lettuce leaves.
Based on 7 servings, with Paleo Wraps: 240 calories, 13.2 g fat, 9.5 Carbohydrates



***Time saving tip! Make up a whole batch and keep in the fridge all week to make a quick lunch.

Now, for the rest of the family....

They do not have need to shed any pounds and most could use a few extra around the middle. So, I turned half of the recipe into a Thai Noodle bowl for them.



Boil up a pot of noodles...any kind you like, then toss with the chicken, carrots, onions, cilantro, peanuts and sauce and you have a huge, huge leg up on Ramen!  Garnish with extra lime and peanuts.


I admit, I was a bit envious of them!! This was a huge winner! I hope you enjoy!

Do you find this "pinteresting"? Is it likeable?  It would be an honor if you would share this post and follow me on social media!
