Chicken tenders may be larger than strips, so slice if needed. If you can’t find Thai coconut curry hummus, buy regular hummus and add dried coconut, curry powder and garlic powder to taste. If you like, you can substitute 1 tablespoon coconut oil and 1½ tablespoons water for the coconut milk. These wraps should be served immediately.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil, such as avocado oil
  • ¾ pound chicken strips or chicken tenders, sliced to equal thinness
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Sweetener of chice

  • 4 Nuco Turmeric Coconut Wraps (or another Low Carb wrap of your choice)
  • ½ red bell pepper (cut into matchsticks)
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • Handful of fresh Thai basil, basil, mint or cilantro

 

Directions:

  2. In a blender, blend hummus, 3 tablespoons coconut milk, lime juice, and nut butter or tahini until smooth. If too thick, add 1 more tablespoon coconut milk. Set aside. (Makes 1½ cups.)
