Peanut Butter Lettuce Wraps

I owe you all a wedding picture post and you certainly don’t want to miss out on the amazing peanut butter lettuce wraps I made this weekend. The wedding at Cross Creek Ranch was fun and pretty in pink and green:

It was a beautiful wedding!!  And if you want to steal someone’s heart, just make these peanut butter lettuce wraps:

Here’s what to do:

Peanut Butter Lettuce Wraps

-1/2 cup dry roasted, unsalted peanut, finely ground in food processor
-1.5 pounds of cooked shredded chicken (I picked up a rotisserie chicken and made my life easier)
-half of an 8 oz container of mushrooms, chopped up.
-1 bunch of scallions, chopped
-4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
-1.5 inch piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
-2 T creamy peanut butter
-1/2 up chicken stock
-1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
-hot sauce
-lettuce (I like Boston bibb, but romaine would work too)

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat, add garlic,scallions,and mushrooms and cook for about 8 minutes. Add shredded chicken. Push ingredients to the side of the pan. Add peanut butter to melt. Whisk in chicken stock, soy sauce, and some hot sauce to taste. Mix all together and add peanuts.

To eat, scoop a little into the lettuce leaf, add a little more hot sauce if you like, and there you have a peanut butter lettuce wrap:

And why not have some cheesecake for dessert:
