Cheesecake Factory Thai Lettuce Wraps

Menu Description: "Create your own Thai lettuce rolls! Satay chicken strips, carrots, bean sprouts, coconut curry noodles and lettuce leaves with three delicious spicy Thai sauces - peanut, sweet red chili and tamarind-cashew."

Cheesecake Factory's #1 appetizer is finally fauxed, and I've got every secret component for an impressive knockoff here in one recipe: Delicious duplicates of the three amazing dipping sauces, perfect sweet-and-sour cucumber slices, and an easy coconut curry marinade clone for the chicken that also doubles as a sauce for the noodles. Get ready to blow everyone away when you unveil this build-it-yourself Thai-inspired lettuce wrap kit at the table. The final dish will serve twice as many people as the restaurant version, and you'll most likely have enough leftover sauces to serve it again if you want to get more chicken.

LOTS of work, but seriously worth it! Could not find tamarind however so omitted and still was good. Made tons of extra sauce so attempting to freeze so I can reuse. Saved our family a lot of money by having restaurant quality food at home. (Even served cheesecake for dessert!)

This dish taste just like restaurant appetizer. Those sauces were perfect.

I have enjoyed this appetizer at Cheesecake Factory many times and thought it turned out very close to the original. I welcomed the chance to adapt it to my taste. I don't do spicy, so I altered the peanut sauce (minus the chili sauce) and didn't bother making the sweet red chili sauce. I couldn't find the rice noodles at my local grocer, so I used a package of dried rice noodle soup mix (without using the enclosed spices). I also used pre-julienned carrot slices available in the produce section. The most work was chopping the cilantro, next time I will use a blender or mini-food chopper. With those changes, it would be super-easy and often made in my house. ;)

It was a lot of work, but the wraps were every bit as good as at Cheesecake Factory - maybe even better.
