Spicy chicken and red peppers topped with a creamy Thai peanut sauce, crunchy peanuts, and served in crisp butter lettuce cups. Easy, healthy, and ready in 20 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste (I used about 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 head butter lettuce, leaves separated
  • Sauce (see note)

  • 4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil (if you have it on hand)
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • optional: lime wedges and cilantro for serving
  • Instructions

  • Whisk together sauce ingredients and set aside. Dice chicken into small pieces – less than 1/2 inch.
  • Drizzle pan with oil. Add chicken and saute over medium heat about 5 minutes until browned. Add red peppers and cook another 2-3 minutes until peppers are tender and chicken is fully cooked through.
  • Fill lettuce leaves with chicken and pepper mixture, then top with peanut sauce and chopped peanuts. Serve with fresh lime wedges if desired, for squeezing on top, and chopped cilantro.
