All my favourite bold Asian flavours in every mouthful. This Thai Chicken Salad recipe also makes a great base for exploring—swap out the chicken for beef, pork or even seafood.
Thai Chicken Salad
Cooking time 15 minutes
Prep time 3 hour
4 to 6 chicken thighs
Chicken marinade/salad dressing
2/3 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp finely grated ginger
1 large or 2 small red peppers, thinly sliced
1 cup finely chopped snow peas
1 cup finely chopped green onions
1/3 cup dry roasted sesame seeds
1/3 cup roasted peanuts
1 cup roughly chopped cilantro
5 or 6 red chillies (to taste)
Mix all marinade/dressing ingredients in a bowl, then divide mixture in half. Use one-half of marinade to coat chicken thighs—prepare in
a Ziploc bag or another bowl and let sit at least two hours. (Three to four hours is better.) Set aside the other half of the marinade.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, add finely cut red peppers, snow peas, green onions, sesame seeds, peanuts, cilantro and chillies, and toss with remainder of the dressing.
Remove chicken from marinade, season, grill and slice into ½ inch slices and place atop salad. Garnish with extra cilantro and roasted sesame seeds. Eat!
