Chicken Satay Salad
- 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
- 7 tablespoons (about 1/2 cup) Thai peanut sauce
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 head romaine lettuce, sliced
- 1/2 English cucumber or 2 Persian cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
- 1 medium carrot, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for topping
- 3 tablespoons chopped roasted salted peanuts
Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Slice the chicken breasts 1/2 inch thick and toss with 2 tablespoons peanut sauce, 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl. Grill the chicken until just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
Whisk the remaining 5 tablespoons peanut sauce and 2 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the lime juice and 2 tablespoons water in a large bowl. Add the lettuce, cucumber, carrot, bell pepper and cilantro and toss. Season with salt and pepper and divide among bowls. Top with the chicken, peanuts and more cilantro.
