Thai Chicken Salad

This is easy and tasty. It’s also a great way to sneak broccoli into your diet without having to taste it. Because, really… who wants to taste broccoli?

Dietary Consideration: Paleo

Serves: 2

Salad Ingredients:

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken
Lettuce. Get whatever you like.
1 small bag of pre-packaged broccoli slaw
3 green onions, thinly sliced
a couple of mushrooms, thinly sliced, if you like mushrooms

Sauce Ingredients:

1/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup water
2 Tbs coconut aminos (If you’re not paleo, you can use soy sauce instead.)
2 Tbs lime juice (about 1 lime)
2 cloves garlic, minced
A small pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

There’s no mad scientist chemistry here. Just put all the stuff in a bowl and mix it up until it’s smooth and incorporated.


Grill or cook chicken breasts and dice into 1/2″ cubes. Cool to room temperature or thereabouts.

Toss the broccoli slaw, veggies, and chicken together.

Wash & dry lettuce. Put as much as you want into a bowl.

Put some chicken mixture on top of the lettuce.

Drizzle with sauce. And when I say drizzle, I mean drown your salad in it. It’s delicious. No kidding, I could put this stuff in a cup and drink it. It’s really that good.

That’s it. If you prepare the chicken ahead of time, this makes a super fast and nutritious lunch.
