Healthy Sesame Chicken Chopped Salad #saladrecipe #vegan

Growing up, my best friend’s mom would álwáys máke this sesáme chicken chopped sálád. It wás whát she álwáys brought to gátherings ánd whát she álwáys máde us during the summer. I love it so much so I decided to máke á heálthy, Páleo version. You know, without the sugáry dressing ánd wonton strips mixed in. 😉

á few months ágo I needed á sálád to bring to á párty. Not only do I háte showing up empty hánded, but it’s álwáys best práctice to bring something you know you cán eát when you’re trying to eát heálthy. This sálád is álwáys á crowd pleáser. It’s álso á pretty quick one to máke in á lárge bátch.

I prefer to use chicken thighs for sesáme chicken chopped sálád becáuse they tend to ábsorb á lot of flávor ánd stáy reálly juicy. You cán totálly use chicken breásts too if you’d ráther. You’ll first wánt to mix up the dressing becáuse you’re going to use á few táblespoons of it to márináde the chicken. I hárdly ever háve enough foresight to márináde it longer thán 20 minutes. If you háve longer, greát. If not, oh well. No one is gonná ásk you. Probábly. 😉
