Peanut sauce

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, finely diced

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon GF soy sauce

1 tablespoon sriracha (or other chilli sauce)

3 tablespoons pure peanut butter

1 tablespoon lime juice

2 tablespoons coconut cream

300g chicken breast, cut into small cubes

2 heads of cos lettuce 

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1/4 red cabbage, thinly sliced

2 carrots, julienned

1/2 red capsicum, julienned

1 lime, cut into wedges 

1/4 cup roasted peanuts

head of coriander, roughly chopped


Combine all the ingredients for the peanut sauce in a food processor and blitz until smooth.

Place the chicken in a large bowl with half of the peanut sauce. Mix until the chicken is well coated in the sauce, then cover the bowl and refrigerate for half an hour.

Meanwhile, rinse the lettuce leaves and pat dry with paper towel.

Once the chicken has marinated, add a tablespoon of sesame oil to a large frying pan and cook until browned and slightly crispy.

To serve, place the chicken in lettuce cups with the cabbage, carrots and capsicum, then top with peanuts, coriander and a lime wedge.

Drizzle with the remaining peanut sauce and enjoy.
