Instructions

Equipment Needed

Keto Peanut Sauce

  • Add peanut butter, honey substitute ( like this one from Nature’s Hollow ), soy sauce, water, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil and crushed red pepper to a small mixing bowl.
  • Peel the garlic and ginger, grate each using a zester or the small side of a cheese grater, and add to the bowl.
  • Puree the sauce until smooth using an Immersion Blender ( or whisk ). Set aside.

Keto Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  • Heat the skillet on medium high heat
  • Take the boneless skinless chicken breasts and slice them in half horizontally. Season each filet with salt and pepper, then fry them in the skillet once hot, until the internal temperature reaches 180°. Set them aside to cool.
  • Wash and pat dry the butter lettuce leaves, then set them up on a serving tray or platter.
  • Peel the carrot then chop it into matchsticks. Rinse the enoki mushrooms through cool water and then chop off the root ends. Wash the arugula, chop the cashews and dice up the cilantro.
  • Slice the chicken into thin strips, then divide between the butter lettuce wraps. Spoon out 1 tsp Keto Peanut Sauce over the chicken on each wrap.
  • Divide the carrot between each wrap and then do the same with the enoki mushrooms. Top with a few arugula leaves then spoon out an additional 1 tsp Keto Peanut Sauce. Top each lettuce wrap with a large pinch of the chopped cashews and diced cilantro.
  • Serve with a bowl of extra Keto Peanut Sauce for dipping and enjoy!!!

Notes

I get my Nature's Hollow Honey Substitute from amazon! Can't find it there? If you live in Canada, it can also be found at the LowCarbGrocery , LowCarbCanada or in the USA it can be bought directly through Nature's Hollow.
