This is a great dish to serve at a casual lunch or dinner party. Just set out all the ingredients, and let people make their own lettuce bundles. Store-bought roasted duck or chicken can be used.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place duck or chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag along with 1/2 cup soy sauce, and let marinate for 1 hour. Heat a lightly oiled grill or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Grill duck or chicken breasts until cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes per side for duck and 4 to 6 minutes per side for chicken. Let cool slightly, and shred with your fingers, or cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips with a knife.

  • In a food processor, pulse garlic and ginger until finely chopped. Add chile paste, peanut butter, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, sugar, peanut oil, lime juice, and 4 1/2 tablespoons water, and pulse until smooth. If a thinner sauce is desired, add 1 or 2 more teaspoons water, and pulse to combine. Set aside.

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add noodles, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain in a colander, and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.

  • Dress the noodles with 1/2 cup of the peanut sauce, and transfer to a medium serving bowl. If desired, set the bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice to keep the noodles chilled at the table. Arrange peanuts, remaining sauce, and prepared fillings in various serving dishes on the table. Guests can create their own rolls by wrapping noodles, a little sauce, and their choice of meat and fillings in a lettuce leaf.

Fantastic! I recommend serving with fresh basil. I used Taste of Thai red curry paste for the curry sauce. It was yummy yummy. 1 head of iceburg and 3 hungry people pigged out with this as their only meal!

We love the sauce from these wraps. Usually we skip the lettuce and often the chicken, just saucing up some noodles or veggies like broccoli. Great versatile sauce!
