Asian Chicken Salad – Damn Delicious

August 10, 2018

With perfectly juicy, tender teriyaki chicken and the most amazing peanut dressing ever! It’s quick, simple and perfect for a crowd!

Now that we are smack-dab in the middle of summer, it can only mean one thing.
It’s grilling season! And Walmart is the perfect resource to grab all of my summer needs. From their antibiotic-free chicken to their local grown produce, I can find everything I need for this gorgeous Asian chicken salad!
The chicken is combined with a simple teriyaki marinade (homemade or store-bought is fine), which is then grilled to perfection.

It’s juicy, it’s tender, and it’s packed with so much flavorful. Not to mention, it has the most perfect grill marks. Side note: if you don’t have access to a grill, you can use a grill pan on the stovetop but note that it will get super smoky!
From there, we have all of our fun goodies – from the romaine lettuce to the shredded cabbage, carrots, cashews, cilantro, green onions and my two big time faves – chow mein noodles and mandarin oranges!
It’s so stinking easy, you can serve this up for a large crowd for easy entertaining, or you can whip this up on any given weeknight!

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 head romaine, roughly chopped
2 cups shredded red cabbage
1 1/2 cups julienned carrots
3/4 cup crunchy chow mein noodles
1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup roasted cashews

For the peanut dressing
5 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
