  • Switch to Sauté mode. Boil the liquid remaining in the cooker until reduced by about half, about 8 minutes. Turn off the heat and whisk in peanut butter, honey and lime juice until smooth. Using two forks, shred the chicken. Mix the chicken, peanuts and basil into the sauce. Serve the chicken in lettuce leaves with mango, radishes, carrot, lime wedges and more basil, if desired.
