Recipe Ingredients for Asian Peanut Chicken Salad

227 g boneless skinless chicken breast (8 oz.)
1 spray oil
3 quarts water
4 ounces Asian rice noodles
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or gluten-free tamari sauce
1/2 tsp lime zest
1/2 fruit lime (juiced)
3 tbsp reduced fat mayonnaise
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp fresh ginger (minced)
1/2 yellow bell pepper (diced)
1/2 green bell pepper (diced)
2 strips celery (diced)
3 medium green onions (sliced crosswise)

Recipe Directions for Asian Peanut Chicken Salad

  1. Place a large skillet in the oven and preheat to 375F. Spray the hot pan with oil and add the chicken breast.

  2. When the oven is set to preheat, place the water in a large stock pot over high heat. When the water boils, add the rice noodles. Reduce the heat to medium high and cook the noodles at a slow boil, stirring frequently. Meanwhile, make sure to turn the chicken breasts at least once.

  3. While the noodles are cooking, place the sesame oil in a medium Pyrex or stainless bowl. When the noodles are done, drain them and immediately place them in the bowl. Toss to completely coat the noodles with the oil.

  4. Place the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime zest, lime juice, mayonnaise, cayenne pepper and ginger in another bowl. Mix well.

  5. Add the diced peppers and celery to the bowl. Fold together with the dressing. Add the noodles and fold together. Make sure to scrape all of the remaining sesame oil from the bowl into the bowl with the noodles and veggies.

  6. When the chicken is done (after about 20 minutes), remove it from the oven and let cool. Cut the chicken into 1/2 inch cubes and add to the bowl with the dressing, vegetables and noodles. Fold in the green onions. Chill for at least two hours.
