A few days ago I had found this recipe on Pinterest and I couldn't stop thinking about it.
I knew I had to make this delectable looking salad. Y'all, this Chicken Thai Chopped Salad was so good I made it two days in a row. Ya, it was THAT good. I made mine a little different from the original recipe, but here is mine!
Chicken Thai Chopped Salad
For the Dressing:
-2 Cloves Garlic - Minced
-1 Palmful Crushed Red Chili Flakes (more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
-2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar
-1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
-1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
-1 Tablespoon EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
-2 Tablespoons Sugar
-1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
-1/4 Cup Water
Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. I like to do this first before starting the salad so all the ingredients can marinade together and infuse flavors.
For the Salad:
-1 Small Head of Cabbage
-2 Large Carrots
-1 Handful of Cilantro
-1 Cup Peanuts
-2 Green Onions
-2 Cooked Chicken Breasts
-Salt and Pepper to Taste
First, boil your chicken in water on the stove for about 20 mins or until cooked. I cover mine and cook on medium high heat.
Next slice the cabbage into thin strips as if you were making coleslaw.
Shred the carrots anyway you would like. I did long strips and then did a rough chop with them. I used a vegetable peeler for this, but use what is best for you.
Rough chop the green onions, cilantro, and peanuts.
Once the chicken is fully cooked, let it cool and then shred it into bite sized pieces.
You're going to want to find a big bowl, and toss all these amazing ingredients together. Once you've given it a good toss, go ahead and drizzle that dressing you've been letting sit all over it, and toss a few more times.
Let it chill in the fridge for 30 mins or so, a presto! One of the best salads EVER!
This Chicken Thai Chopped salad is literally one of the most delicious things i've ever eaten. The hubs and I drizzled a little Siracha over ours and it was DEVINE!
