Thai Chicken Wraps

Wraps are a popular dinner in our house. We have two regulars: Chicken Caesar and Southwest Chicken. Now we have a third - Thai Chicken. I recently had a really good Thai wrap for lunch and wanted to find something similar to make at home. While this recipe was very good, I am still on a hunt for a different sauce. The sauce I had ordered was much lighter in color and very spicy. I know how to fix the spice level, but not sure what was in, or not in, the sauce to make it much lighter. I'm guessing no soy sauce? Either way - these wraps are super easy to make and taste great!

3 (6-ounce) chicken breasts
1 tablespoon soy sauce (I use Lite)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon grill seasoning
2 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup julienned carrots
1/2 cup julienned cucumber

1/4 cup room temperature chunky peanut butter, soften in microwave if it has been refrigerated
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 (12-inch) flour tortilla wraps

Heat a grill pan over high heat. Toss chicken with soy and oil and grill 6 minutes on each side.

Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar and cayenne together. Stream in vegetable oil.

Slice cooked chicken on an angle. Toss with carrots and cucumber.

In a very hot nonstick skillet or over a gas burner heat tortillas 15 seconds on each side.

Pile chicken, rice and veggies in wraps and drizzle liberally with spicy peanut sauce before wrapping and rolling.

I'm with you, the spicy part is easy, I'm sure it's sriracha sauce. But color? Hmmmmm.

Also, did you try Thai sweet jasmine rice? That adds something special IMHO.

Probably already figured this out, but the lighter sauce likely had coconut milk in it.
