Asian Chicken Salad Recipes

asian chicken salad recipe

This Asian inspired salad combines the flavor of tangy sesame chicken along with Asian sweetness and a touch of heat from the ginger and garlic. This delicious recipe is a staple at Chinese, Japanese and Thai restaurants.

A popular preparation for this tasty chicken salad recipe is the chicken dumpling. Although it may sound like a simple pre-made thin slice of chicken with its own delicious dressing, it is not. Instead, the dish is actually made up of layers of thinly sliced chicken that are layered in a delicious spicy honey mustard dressing. Add to that an addictive sweet and sour sauce and you have one tasty meal.

You can make this delicious Asian chicken salad recipe using lean pieces of chicken. If you prefer, you can even shred the chicken into smaller pieces before cooking. Although you do not need to trim off the skin, I find this very difficult while cooking. The skin adds in both flavors and colors to the recipe. It is also a good idea to rinse the chicken pieces well before putting them on top of your vegetables. In addition, if you want to have crunchier pieces of chicken, you can opt for boneless, skinless chicken.

For this recipe, you will need two to three servings of cooked, cleaned chicken. Use a fillet fork to remove the skin of the chicken as well as cutting off the gills if you like. In addition, you will need some grapefruit or lime juice, mayonnaise, sesame oil, scallions, dried garlic, dried ginger and scallions powder, sesame seed, and dark soy sauce. Depending on how much chicken you are making, you may use three to four cups of these ingredients. This mixture will be ready to serve.

Prepare the ingredients that go into making your salad before going out to your dinner party. Prepare your vegetables such as radishes, carrots, cucumbers, onions, green beans, and corn. You can cut up pieces of red or green pepper as well. Be sure to have plenty of napkins and paper towels to help you clean up your chicken salad.

While chopping your vegetables, think about adding small pieces of raw broccoli and cauliflower to your dish. If you wish, add finely chopped peanuts. To make things more interesting, you can put sliced scallions on top of your bowl of mixed greens. You can then finish off your meal with a spicy and tasty paste made from roasted chili peppers, peanuts and lime. You can certainly jazz up this recipe by adding scallions, hot pepper sauce, and hot sauce to taste.
