Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

I love a good chicken salad (no lie, while I was typing chicken salad, I typed chocolate…chocolate is always on the brain), especially tossed right on top of a bed of lettuce. You don’t even need dressing!

This peanut-y, Asian flare makes for a scrumptious salad, calling me to pile on the veggies!

Woot!

What’s your favorite way to top a salad?

  1. Haha, I can relate to the chocolate issue! I’m terribly lazy about making salads at home, but this one sounds awesome. I’m getting hungry just thinking about the combo of Asian flavors mixed with the chicken :)
