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 2 WW Points 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.

These look SO good. I am going to have to add this to my lunch rotation!! I love anything with a nice peanut sauce!
Does the Siracha make it spicy? Would it still be good without it? Or recommend a sub? I have a hard time with spicy! Thanks!
The sauce isn’t spicy!
Made them last night and everyone loved them. We used tortillas and put the wrap in the panini press for a little bit. We will definitely make them again.
This sauce is !!! I might even make a bigger batch for a stir fry. Thank you for the idea and recipe!
Excited we will be trying this tomorrow for lunch tomorrow recipe sounds amazing and I hope my kids will enjoy these they love peanut butter.
OMG! These wraps were simple and delicious! Thank you for sharing and this will we added my meal rotation!!
Oh my goodness so quick and easy to throw together and so delicious! A perfect WFH lunch! Thanks Emily!
These wraps are incredible and a close dupe in my opinion for the Starbucks chicken wrap. I cook this meal at least twice a month for my family and even my kids love it. I’ve even used this as a meal prep and put the sauce on the side. So good.
Made this with some leftover rotisserie chicken for lunch today – so good. I think I could just eat that peanuty, spicy veggie mix and be happy!
Wow, these were great! I’ve been on WW two months and miss Thai food. These will be added to my meal rotation!! Thanks for sharing!
The sauce is so good! I had shredded chicken breast on hand and tossed a portion of the chicken with some of the sauce and shredded carrots (not a slaw fan), wrapped in a low carb wrap and lettuce. Yum!
This was delicious and so easy to make! I used rotisserie chicken breast to make it even easier. I’m watching my carbs so I used the romaine lettuce as a wrap instead of using a lo-carb wrap. It was amazing!! Thank you for posting this recipe!
