What I love about this salad:
- Rotisserie chicken from supermarket
- Low calorie/healthy
- Thai peanuty goodness
- Ingredients you probably have on hand
- No cook
- Great lunch leftovers
- But mostly…really, really tasty! The crunch of the cuc’s and the peanuty sauce with the crispy Wontons really pack a punch!
6 cups of your favorite salad (I used a mixture of Romain and Kale but bagged, shredded Iceburg works well too).
2 cups shredded chicken
1 sliced cucumber
1/2 cup sliced green onion
1/2 thinly sliced red pepper
8-10 Wonton wrappers
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup hot water
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Juice of one lime
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes or hot sauce (more if you like it spicy)
1 finely chopped garlic clove
Combine all dressing ingredients with a whisk and refridgerate for 15 minutes.
Cut Wonton wrappers diagnolly. Heat 1/4 vegetable oil on medium high heat until just starting to sizzle (about 5 minutes) Using tongs, place wrappers into hot oil, cook 1 minute on each side…just until brown, bubbly and crispy, drain on paper towels.
Divide lettuce, chicken, cucumbers and red peppers among 4 bowls.
Top with crispy Wonton wrappers, drizzle with dressing and serve!
