Creamy Miso Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps – grilled chicken and juicy grapes tossed with a simple creamy miso-peanut sauce. Super easy and healthy recipe!


  • For the Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons miso
  • 1/2 cup broth or water
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed, minced (optional)

For the Lettuce Wraps

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups red, green or black Grapes from California, halved
  • butter lettuce leaves for serving
  • lime juice


  1. Whisk all the sauce ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
  2. Heat a grill or skillet over medium high heat. Coat the chicken with the chili powder and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. When the grill is hot, add a little bit of butter if necessary to prevent sticking, and add the chicken. Cook for a few minutes on each side until the chicken is cooked through. I like to let it get it really golden brown on the outside. Set aside and let cool for at least five minutes. Cut or shred into small pieces.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine about half of the sauce with the chicken and the grapes. Add more sauce as needed to get everything evenly coated.
  4. Stuff each butter lettuce leaf with the mixture. Add water or oil to the remaining sauce until it pours evenly off the end of a spoon – use it to drizzle over the top. Squeeze with lime juice when serving if you’re that kind of person.


Store the chicken and grapes mixture separate from the lettuce for up to three days in the fridge.

Miso can be found in the refrigerated section of many grocery stores. The stuff I buy just comes in a little container similar to sour cream or yogurt. Ask your grocer!

Miso paste is thick and very salty. In this recipe it adds flavor and weight to the sauce. If you can’t find miso, you will need to compensate for the sauce thickness AND for the saltiness. For example, use more peanut butter to thicken, but also add a little more soy sauce for saltiness.
