Notes

I am not a fan of chicken thigh meat, but many love this version better.
I use Bragg’s Liquid Aminos but Tamari is a great substitute!
Coconut oil can be used in place of the olive oil; gives a sweeter hint.
Big Guy loves WAY MORE chili sauce. I add extra Tamari before eating. Little Guy skips the green onions. Medium Guy always wants a batch “for later.”
We also switch it up by topping the wraps with rice noodles for a crisp crunch.
Substituting ground chicken or even turkey or TVP works in this recipe too!
If you make this, let me know what you think!
