Ingredients

  • 100g smooth peanut butter
  • 140g full-fat coconut yogurt or natural yogurt mixed with 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2-3 spring onions, finely shredded
  • 3 cooked skinless chicken breasts, shredded
  • 2 Baby Gem lettuces, big leaves separated
  • ½ cucumber, halved lengthways, seeds scraped out with a teaspoon, cut into matchsticks
  • toasted sesame seeds, for sprinkling

Method

  1. In your smallest pan, gently warm the peanut butter, yogurt, 3 tbsp water, sweet chilli and soy sauce until melted together into a smooth sauce. Set aside and allow to cool.

  2. Mix the spring onions and chicken into the sauce and season. Chill until the party – keep the lettuce leaves and cucumber under damp kitchen paper.

  3. To assemble, add a bundle of cucumber to each lettuce leaf cup, plus a spoon of the chicken mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and sit on a big platter for everyone to dig in. Or simply serve a pile of lettuce leaves alongside bowls of chicken and cucumber.
