Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Look for Thai or Asian peanut sauce in the ethnic-foods section of the grocery store.
Other tender leaf lettuce can be used in this recipe. Or use small pieces of iceberg lettuce to make lettuce cups instead of wraps.
Rotisserie chicken or refrigerated cooked chicken breast strips, cut into small strips, would work well in this recipe too.
