Healthy Chicken Recipe: Warm Snow Pea & Chicken Salad

Warm Snow Pea and Chicken Salad

Warm Snow Pea and Chicken Salad

Eating Well has an interesting chicken-based recipe that is easy to prepare and tasty for the palate. They point out that snow peas aren’t just for stir-fries. Thinly sliced, their crunchy texture and sweet taste combined with a creamy Asian dressing, truly make this salad special.
It’s delightfully different, with a crunchy type of texture and a sweet taste. When combined with an Asian dressing, you have something really special.

Makes 4 servings, 11/4 cups each

ACTIVE TIME:  40 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 40 minutes

EASE OF PREPARATION: Easy

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed
1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, divided
2 tablespoons tahini or cashew butter
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound snow peas, trimmed and thinly slivered lengthwise
2 tablespoons chopped cashews

1. Place chicken in a medium skillet or saucepan and add broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer gently until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board to cool. Shred into bite-size pieces. (Cool and refrigerate the broth, reserving it for another use.)
2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, soy sauce, 2 teaspoons sesame oil and tahini (or cashew butter) in a large bowl until smooth.
3. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in slivered peas and cook, stirring, until bright green, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the dressing.
4. Add the chicken to the bowl with the peas; toss to combine. Serve sprinkled with cashews.
