so recently i bought a new cookbook. if you know my aversion to cookbooks, you’re probably laughing right now. but, it was the new cooking with all things trader joe’s. & if your a trader joe’s fan, it’s a necessity! with so many yummy sounding recipes, i didn’t know which to try first, but eventually i settled on the chickety chinese chicken salad. it was easy, delicious & everyone licked their plate (even the little boys).
chickety chinese chicken salad
3 cups cooked chicken cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 cup trader joe’s soyaki or veri veri teriyaki (although i think any soy or teriyaki sauce would do the trick)
1/3 cup creamy salted peanut butter
1 tb. toasted sesame oil
1/3 cup water
1/2 of a red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1/2 of a yellow bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 cup of snow peas
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup cashews
whisk soyaki (or whatever you choose), peanut butter, sesame oil & water until well blended.
place chicken, vegetables & cashews in a large bowl. ad peanut sauce & stir to coat evenly.
p.s. it made for great leftovers, and i’m not a leftover kinda girl.
