I used to LOVE the Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps from PF Chang’s. Once I stopped eating soy (amongst other things), the possibility to ever order this dish flew out the window. I knew I had to recreate it. Here you have it, my friends. A clean, healthy version of the beloved Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps with a creamy ‘peanut’ sauce! Grain-free, paleo-friendly, soy-free, sugar-free, and Whole30 approved!
