Chicken Satay Salad

Chicken Satay Salad

Today’s lunch, Chicken Satay Salad. It is day 13 of our Whole30 as I write this and it has been a hard day regarding food. For some reason, the desire for sweets is strong. Thankfully, the desire to stay away from sugar is stronger. In fact, sugar is SO sweet to me right now.

This morning we ordered an almond milk latte…we remembered to as about the carageenan, but forgot to ask about the sugar…we took one sip and we asked to switch to black coffee…such a bummer. As we drank the black coffee we drove to the next town and got our favorite latte with almond milk that isn’t sweet. Small problem, right?

Chicken Satay Salad

My husband’s favorite Thai flavor is peanut sauce. I don’t make it at home often, but decided to today, but used almonds instead of peanuts and it was really good. It isn’t quite peanut sauce, but so close for those who can’t eat peanuts.

Here is what I did:

2 lbs boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces

1 cup almond (or peanut) satay sauce

2 medium cucumbers, shaved with a veggie peeler

1 cup shredded carrots

1 cup cilantro, chopped

Combine the chicken with 1 cup of the satay sauce and let it marinate in the fridge for an hour or so.

While the chicken is marinating, shave the cucumbers and assemble the salad.

Drizzle it with the remainder of the satay sauce.

Saute the chicken in a large skillet for 3-5 minutes or until all the pink is gone in the middle.

Top the salad with the cooked chicken, toasted almonds, and extra cilantro and serve.
