  • 2 large chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 3 tbsp peanut satay sauce (I used Thai Kitchen)
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 2 medium carrots, julienne cut
  • 2 bell peppers, one red, one yellow or orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 long English cucumber, julienne cut
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped

Peanut Sauce Dressing

  • 1/2 cup olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 4 tsp peanut satay sauce (I used Thai Kitchen)
  • 4 tsp honey


  • Whisk Peanut Sauce Dressing ingredients together. Set aside to allow flavours to blend.
  • Thinly slice (or julienne cut) carrots, cucumber, and bell peppers. Wash, dry and chop or tear lettuce or your choice of greens. 
  • Combine 3 tbsp peanut satay sauce with 2 tsp oil. Cut chicken breasts into 1 inch cubes and toss with peanut sauce/oil mixture. Grease the grill and cook chicken over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink inside. Watch carefully to prevent burning. Peanut sauce contains sweetener which will scorch if heat is too high.
  • Toss greens and thinly sliced vegetables and transfer to bowls. Add grilled chicken, garnish with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Toss with Peanut Sauce Dressing and serve.
