Thai Peanut Chicken Salad
I went through lots of recipe testing before I came up with the perfect Thai Peanut Sauce. It is a light and fresh sauce with lots of depth of flavor. It works amazingly well on everything from Thai Peanut Lettuce Wraps to Thai Peanut Chicken Flatbread. When the sauce is cooked down in recipes like these, it intensifies the richness of the sauce which really boosts it’s flavor. It also works great when you are wanting to add a lighter flavor to dishes like this Thai Peanut Chicken Crunch Slaw Salad.
Healthy Thai Chicken Salad
I have been aware of my lack of veggie intake lately and been making an effort to eat more vegetables on a daily basis. This Thai Peanut Crunch Slaw Salad serves that purpose wonderfully. It is loaded with a variety of fresh veggies, including cabbage, carrots, broccoli slaw, bell peppers, cucumbers and green onions. The chicken, peanuts and Thai Peanut Sauce add a richness and boost of protein that makes it a complete meal perfect for lunch or dinner.
This Thai Chicken Salad recipe makes a very large batch. That means it is great for serving at a pot luck dinner or bringing to an office work lunch.
I like to meal prep a bunch of the vegetables in a large bag as well as the chicken in peanut sauce in a container. Then, when I am wanting to make a quick lunch or dinner, I just toss together some of the vegetables with chicken along with a squeeze of lime juice. It is such a fresh and delicious meal prep and so much better than those bagged salads!
