Recipe: Thai Chicken Salad

October 3, 2016

Happy Monday lovies! I hope you had the best weekend. I am still recovering from the high of my girls weekend. It was such a wonderful weekend exploring Denver. We went to some amazing places and I cannot wait to share my Denver tour guide this week! If you are following me on Snapchat (@kgrace01) you saw a little sneak peek of those places!

Sunday was a blur which required an easy meal. I needed something that was filling, healthy and didn't require a lot of prep. In my world, that is usually a salad, something Adam isn't super fond of. This means I have to get super creative with my salad creations. Enter this Chicken Thai Salad. I got the inspiration from this Buzzfeed. It was a bit bland for my liking so I spiced it up!

It turned out so delicious, a little spicy and Adam even went back for seconds!

Needless to say, Monday came too quick with too little coffee. However, I'm still dreaming of this chicken salad.

  • 1 bag of butter lettuce (my fav!)
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/3 cup red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 chicken breast 
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons fish sauce
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • red jalapeno, diced (use only half if wanting to reduce spice)
  • 2 shallots, sliced very thin 
How to make: 

  1. Salt and pepper chicken and cook until tender. Set aside and slice thin. 
  2. Prepare the veggies! Toss the salad ingredients (sans chicken) in a large bowl!
  3. Make the dressing. Mix well! 
  4. Toss the dressing the in salad, mix well! 
  5. Plate the salad, top with chicken. 
  6. Devour!

Happy Monday everyone! Here's hoping its a great one!
