Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps
These Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps are an easy, healthy lunch idea you’ll definitely want to put in your rotation! With a super flavorful peanut sauce, crunchy cabbage and carrots and a hearty portion of chicken, these wraps are both tasty and filling. They’re also a great way to use leftover chicken, but if you don’t have some already cooked you can always throw some in your slow cooker, or on the grill. The chicken pictured was cooked on a grill pan on my stovetop using cooking spray. You could even use some breast meat from a rotisserie chicken, it all works! I’ve eaten these wraps with both cold chicken and hot, and I like them both ways. Plus, each of these Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps is just 197 calories or 4 Green, 2 Blue or 2 Purple WW SmartPoints each!
Using a powdered peanut butter like PB2 helps keep the sauce for these Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps low in fat while still offering all the tasty peanut flavor you crave. They sell PB2 at my local grocery stores (as well as similar products by other brands), but if you have trouble finding it you can easily order it on Amazon. I’ve used it in several other recipes (I even have a category for it in my recipe index) and it’s great added to oatmeal, sauces or baked goods, so you’ll have no trouble using it up!
As I mention in the ingredients, I used Atoria’s Mini Lavash flatbreads in this recipe, but other wraps/flatbreads would of course work as well. If you want to keep the nutrition facts or points similar you’ll want to find a wrap that has similar stats (50 calories, 1 WW SP each). Otherwise, you can buy the Atoria’s wraps on Amazon!

Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps
- 2 tablespoons PB2 powdered peanut butter, or similar powdered peanut butter from another brand
- 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce
- 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 cup dry shredded coleslaw mix, found bagged in the produce section
- ¼ cup shredded carrots
- 2 teaspoons chopped cilantro, optional
- 2 low calorie wraps/flatbreads, I used Atoria’s Mini Lavash which are 50 calories/1 WW SP each, so you may want to use something with similar nutrition stats
- 2-4 large lettuce leaves, I use green leaf lettuce
- 4 ounces cooked boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced or shredded
- In a medium sized bowl, combine the PB2, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, black pepper, garlic powder, sriracha, and sesame oil and stir until combined into a sauce. Add the coleslaw mix, shredded carrots, and cilantro (if using). Stir together until coated/combined.
- To build each wrap, lay a flatbread on a clean, dry surface and place the lettuce at one end. Top the lettuce with half of the coleslaw mix and 2 ounces of the chicken. Depending on the type of flatbread you’re using you may want to fold the side edges in, then roll the end with the filling over toward the empty end until completely wrapped. Slice in half before serving.
