Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

Thai Peanut Chicken Salad was the genius recipe idea of my daughter.

We are SOOOO much alike coming up with new, easy recipes to try 🙂

She is slightly addicted to Thai peanut sauce and thought maybe we could create a chicken salad using it.

This was one of the best chicken salads I have ever made and with so much flavor from the Thai/ Bangkok peanut sauce and a slight heat from the sriracha.

You can find the sauce in the Asian section of the grocery store.

How to Make Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

I made some chicken in the slow cooker for the shredded/ diced chicken part of this.

You could bake some Simple Shredded Chicken for Meal Prep or even use the store bought rotisserie chicken to shred.

The other ingredients you see here… Thai peanut sauce, mayo, sriracha, shredded carrot, green onions, and cilantro.

You could also have it on toast, as a sandwich, or with fried wonton crisps.

It will stay fresh in a container in the fridge for a few days.

We loved having it around for just a little snack on crackers in between meals.

This chicken salad would also be the perfect lunch to pack that does not need to be heated.
