Sesame Chicken Salad Recipe

Very similar to sesame noodles, this chicken salad can be eaten in little lettuce cups or as a wrap.

Picnic friendly and easy to put together.

Sesame Chicken Salad Recipe

Serves 8
Prep time: 30 minutes

  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 scallions, sliced into rounds
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha (or other hot sauce)
  • 1 red pepper, julienned
  • 1 cup snow peas, julienned

Poach the chicken breasts in the broth until cooked through. Let cool until you can handle, then shred. Save the broth for soup or discard.

Mix the peanut butter, hot water, garlic, scallions, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar and sriracha together. Toss with the chicken.

Add the red pepper and snow peas. Keep cold until ready to serve.
