Thai Peanut Chicken Salad
Okay, I really hate branching out my of comfort zone when it comes to food, but this was worth it!
I do not eat anything Thai. The closest thing I have ever came to Thai food is a salad like this one at a restaurant. This honestly tasted pretty darn similar.
This salad is packed full of veggies and I added breaded chicken to give it some protein!
After I made this I thought a lot about my mom and how she could bring it to her school for her work day! Store it without the dressing and toss it all together on your lunch break!
Have more time throughout the day?
This salad is perfect for a summer time lunch!
Start by breading your chicken and prepping your veggies! Something I learned this week is A LOT of people think when you bread chicken you dip egg, flour, then breadcrumbs. Actually, it's wet, dry, wet, so you are suppose to go flour, egg, then breadcrumbs!
After that toss all the salad ingredients together, bake or fry the chicken, and assemble one breast on top of the salad! It's that simple!
The only tip I have, that I did not do the first time, is to toss the chicken in a little bit of the dressing before putting it with the salad!
