Notes

  • Tips and Variations for Making a Thai Chicken Salad
  • Don’t like cilantro? Substitute green onions.
  • If you want to make this Thai Chicken Salad a little heartier try adding in rice noodles.
  • The chicken can easily be cooked ahead in the slow cooker! Try cooking it on low for four hours adding in a little broth or water for extra moisture.
  • Make it Vegan by substituting cooked and crumbled Tempeh or using Gardein Chicken Scallopini.
  • If a Thai Chicken Salad with Peanut Sauce is more your thing make the recipe as instructed and substitute in this Peanut Sauce.
  • Skip the fish sauce in the dressing and instead use soy sauce. (Or gluten free tamari. Make sure it is organic!)
