Asian Chicken Salad with Peanut Dressing

    • 30 minutes
    • Serves 4
    • Medium


    Minimal and easy to make salads should be in everyone’s recipe book. This chicken salad has an asian twist with some really cheap ingredients! You may have most of the ingredients at home already. Especially the peanut butter, who doesn’t have some sort of a nut butter at home, right?

    Both the edamame and sesame seeds are optional but highly recommended.



    Cook Your Chicken

    Heat up a large skillet with about 1 tbsp of oil (I use olive oil) and season your chicken breast with a sprinkle of salt and pepper on both sides.

    Once the oil is hot, lower the heat to medium and cook the chicken breasts for 8-10 minutes on each side. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of your chicken breasts. The internal temperature of fully cooked chicken should be 165F. If you do not have a thermometer, see if the chicken is firm to the touch. You can also cut it in half to see if it is done.

    Once the chicken is cooked, transfer to a plate to cool a bit before cutting.


    Make The Peanut Dressing

    Add all of the ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Give it a taste and adjust seasoning, if needed.


    Make The Salad

    Wash and finely chop the cabbage, carrots, red onion and green onion. If you bought frozen edamame, lightly steam the edamame or allow them to thaw in a bowl with cold water for a few minutes. Toss everything into a large bowl and top with sliced or chopped chicken breast, the chopped nuts and black sesame seeds. Last but not least, top with the luscious peanut sauce.
