Chinese Chicken Salad w/ Spicy Ginger-Peanut Dressing



Chinese Chicken Salad with Spicy Ginger-Peanut Dressing 

Salad ingredients:

1 lb. chicken breasts
1 bag ramen noodles
1 cup peanuts
1 bag broccoli slaw 
1 bag snow peas - julianne 
1 carrot - julianne
1/2 red onion sliced
1 bunch of green onions
2 tbsp. fresh mint
2 tbsp. fresh cilantro  

Dressing: 

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp. smooth peanut butter
1 lime zest and juice 

1 inch fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic
2 tbsp. sambol oleleck (thai chili paste) 
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. honey
2 teaspoons sesame oil 
1/4 cup canola oil 
1/4 cup fresh mint minced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro minced 

Whisk all dressing ingredients together.  Pour HALF OF MARINADE into 1 quart bag with chicken breasts and refrigerate for 2 - 4 hours.  

Reserve the other half of the marinade to dress the salad. 

In a large bowl, add all the salad ingredients.  I like to julianne the snow peas and carrots.  Pour the other 1/2 of the marinade on the salad.  Refrigerate until you are ready to serve it. 

Grill chicken breasts.  I used chicken cutlets, and it only took 3 minutes per side.  Slice the chicken and serve on top of the salad. 

Top with broken pieces of ramen for crunch!  YUM!
