Light Wonton & Thai Peanut Chicken Sautée is a healthy and delicious dinner recipe loaded with vegetables, chicken and a spicy Thai peanut and coconut milk sauce.
Light Wonton & Thai Peanut Chicken Sautée
Light Wonton & Thai Peanut Chicken Sautée is a recreation from my favorite dish, Flying Tiger Chicken & Peapods, at Doolittle’s Woodfire Grill. The restaurant version is loaded with crunchy fried wontons, and while that tastes wonderful, I wanted to lighten the dish up and enjoy it at home.
I decided to slice up some wonton sheets and toss them in the oven to crisp them up. I was concerned they wouldn’t have the same great crisp texture you get from the fried ones in a bag, but they turned out better than expected. Not only did they pair beautifully with the sautéed chicken and veggies in the Thai peanut sauce, but I will definitely be using these for more recipes such as salad toppers.
So instead of leaving the house in this freezing weather and driving an hour to enjoy my favorite dish, I can simply whip up this sautée, grab a glass of wine and relax. There is nothing better than enjoying a delicious but lightened up version of a restaurant favorite in the comforts of your own home!
