Shredded Thai chicken salad

 In Chicken, Dinner/Supper, Lunch, Recipes, Salads & Starters

Shredded Thai chicken salad

Let’s talk about lunch for a second. I don’t know why, but recently I have pretty much zero inspiration when it comes to lunch time. I have an egg with avo on toast or some oats for breakfast and I always plan something for dinner but when it comes to lunch, fetching the kids from school, helping them with homework and sorting out their lunch leaves me feeling tired and ready for a nap. I find that when I plan and prep my ingredients for lunch, I find it a lot harder to abandon that idea and reach for a slice of toast instead so I’ve started prepping this salad the night before and you guys, it is SO delicious, I could easily eat it every single day.

The vegetables provide crunch and flavour, the chicken gives you the protein boost you need in the afternoon and the dressing brings it all together in all its peanutty-Asian-inspired glory. This makes a fabulous packed lunch (just keep the dressing at the bottom of your container and mix right before serving) and will leave you feeling full and satisfied and very much chuffed with yourself that you had THIS for your lunch while other people force down sad sandwiches. You’re welcome!
