Thai Chicken Wraps with Spicy Peanut Sauce | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Pregnancy cravings are a funny thing.  I’m in my third trimester right now, so I don’t get many of them anymore (I get the most during that first trimester), but still – when I get one, I have to fulfill it!!  The other day, I started having a craving for some sort of Thai flavored noodles with a peanut sauce.  Then I remembered this recipe, and I couldn’t get it out of my head.  Well, since December was a month filled with not a lot of cooking on my part, and since I’m trying to build up my reserves of posts for when I have this baby, I didn’t want to make a recipe that I’ve made before that I couldn’t blog about.  (Yes, my blog runs my life!!)  So the first thought I had was that Rachael Ray certainly had a recipe with a peanut sauce that could curb my craving.

As I sat to do my menu for the week, I sat down at the computer to search for a RR recipe that would work.  I came across these chicken wraps at the beginning of my search, and since they had such a high rating, I thought I’d give them a try.

Well, they weren’t exactly what I was looking for to curb that craving.  But that doesn’t mean that they weren’t delicious!!  I actually really enjoyed all the flavors and textures going on.  The biggest complaint about this recipe on the RR site was about the peanut sauce, but I liked it.  I didn’t love it so much that I wanted to eat it with a spoon or anything, but on the wrap, I thought it was really good.  And – I think this would be a great recipe to use up some extra produce from your fridge.  I think the veggies would be interchangeable.  I followed the recipe, except I left out the bean sprouts.  But I think they would be great with some cabbage or broccoli – or anything you have on hand!!  And it’s quick – which is always a plus in my book!

    Would you believe that yesterday I seriously got the worst, sudden craving for a big bowl of Thai Noodles with Peanut Sauce?! Maybe it's a 3rd tri thing? I'm loving the idea of all that goodness rolled up in a quick and easy wrap.

    I can't believe you are already in your third trimester…how exciting! When exactly are you due? And these wraps look pretty darn good. I was watching Rachel Ray at the gym this morning, and as always, she was cooking up something tasty. Thank you for sharing this meal with me! Have a great Sunday with your family and friends.
