Spicy chicken wrap w peanut sauce?

I tried out a new Moosewood recipe today for spicy peanut sauce.

Using that sauce, now I think I might like to make warm chicken wraps. I was thinking I could shred up some of a rotisserie chicken, and then add in some basil, mint, cucumber, tomato, maybe Boston lettuce, maybe red pepper. Am I missing something? Should I dress the chicken in the sauce and let it sit for a while before assembling? I would think it would be better that way...

My modified version of the Spicy Peanut Sauce, which whipped up in about two minutes in the blender and tastes great, is

1/2 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp vinegar (I used cider vinegar, though rice vinegar would be great too of course)
2 Tbsp minced cilantro
3 cloves garlic, minced

I blended, then added one Tablespoon at a time four-ish Tablespoons of warm water until I liked the silky texture of the sauce. I will also pack some for a friend who is going on a road trip -- a healthy snack for dipping crunchy raw veggies :)
