How To Make Keto Lettuce Wraps
Full directions and measurements for these Asian lettuce wraps are in the recipe card printed below.
Start by adding your oil into the Instant Pot and hit the saute function. Then you will work in batches searing the chicken.
Now after all your chicken is cooked, remove all your chicken. Pour in the chicken broth. Scrape down the stuck-on bits. Most of the time I use my ceramic nonstick inner pot to reduce stuck-on food.
Add in the sugar-free peanut butter, lime, honey, soy sauce, Sriracha, ginger, and garlic.
Place a trivet or steamer basket in and sit your chicken on the top. Place the lid on your Instant Pot and make sure the valve is set to sealing.
Then pressure cook for 10 minutes, do a quick release of pressure. Remove the trivet.
Then you will thicken the sauce by turning the saute feature on. Follow the directions to create a thicker sauce.
This is also a good time to check to see it's time to order a new Instant Pot sealing ring replacement.
Can I Make This Lettuce Wraps Recipe With Ground Chicken
If you want to use ground meat instead of diced chicken, go right ahead and use ground meat. Just cook your meat till it is fully cooked.
Then cook your meat in the sauce, instead of a trivet. Ground turkey, ground chicken are both great options.
Best Lettuce for Lettuce Wraps
You will find using butter lettuce, bibb, Boston, iceberg or even Romaine leaves are a great option for these Thai peanut chicken wrap.
You want to have lettuce that can hold its shape as you fill it with this Thai peanut chicken lettuce wrap. You could also make lettuce wraps with our Korean beef recipe.
Make sure to wash, and prep your lettuce, and then drain off the water. Then pile on the chicken mixture and enjoy. Arrange on a serving tray, and you're ready to go.
How do you keep lettuce wraps from falling apart?
The key is to reaching for stiffer pieces of lettuce. You want to make sure it is form and will hold the shape.
If you reach for thinner lettuce, you will find it falls apart rather easily as it is filled with the meat and sauce.
