The BEST Thai Chicken Salad

image

 

 

The title says it all! This is hands down our favorite salad! BIG FLAVOR!
This salad does take some time for the chicken marinade, chopping, dressing AND a peanut sauce! All of that for just one salad! It is well worth the effort!

 

 

 

 

CHICKEN MARINADE
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons of rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 clove of garlic
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1 lime, juiced
salt
pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

SALAD
2 Hearts of romaine, chopped
2 or 3 handfuls of already made coleslaw mix
1 cucumber (peeled and chopped)
1 red bell pepper
5 scallions
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1 cup salted peanuts

DRESSING
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
salt
pepper

PEANUT SAUCE
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
4 Table spoons reduced sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup water

DIRECTIONS
In a ziploc  bag , combine all the ingredients for the chicken marinade. Mush it around, then let marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Cook chicken on the grill until done or bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Allow the chicken to cool slightly and cut into bite size pieces.

Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix dressing ingredients together .
Mix peanut sauce ingredients together
To build salad individually, place salad ingredients in a bowl , add some of the dressing and mix. Add chicken and drizzle with peanut sauce.

Notes: I like to make the dressing and peanut sauce in medium size mason jars mixing well.

Add water to the peanut sauce cautiously , you want to be able to drizzle it over the chicken. If you make this after the peanut sauce has been in the refrigerator warm in the microwave slightly to drizzle easier.
