Thai Peanut Chicken Salad was the genius idea of my daughter. She is slightly addicted to Thai peanut sauce and thought maybe we could create a chicken salad using it.
We are SOOOO much alike coming up with new recipes to try 🙂
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.
Put 4 cups shredded or diced cooked chicken in a large bowl along with 1/2 cup each peanut sauce and mayo.
Then add 1 to 2 Tablespoons sriracha, a shredded carrot, about 4 sliced green onions, and 1/4 cup chopped cilantro.
Mix it all together and that’s it!
Enjoy Peanut Chicken Salad as lettuce wraps or on crackers 🙂
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.
