Thai peanut-satay chicken salad

This salad tastes amazing. I know, I's a salad, but genuinely it tastes so nice and I'm eally not that 'salad' person. I made the dressing when I was experimenting with different flavours and I think I hit the jackpot. I've been having a lot of salads recently, partly because of health and partly because I just absolutely love biscuits so I feel like I have to be healthy so I can eat more of them haha.

This is not only the best salad I've ever eaten but my new favourite meal. It is that good.

The ingredients are for two people but if you eat it all on your own know that I am not judging you, not at all, because I also could not stop eating it. Wow, reading this back I am shocked to be so happy about eating a salad haha...

Chicken, creamy avocado, crunchy peanuts, peppery rocket and a thai-inspired zesty dressing bringing all the flavours together. Delicious.

For the amazing zingy dressing you need:
-7 springs of coriander (the leaf and stalk)
-sliced ginger (1 forkful)
-20 ml reduced-salt soy sauce
-60 ml milk
-1 birds eye chilli (those tiny ones that look cute but mean business)
-1 tsp of peanut butter
-2 tsp of powdered peanut butter

Put the ingredients into a blender and blitz.


For the salad you need:
-Chicken (3 mini-fillets per person)
-Salad leaves (1/2 bag)
-2 tomatoes
-1 avocado
-1 fistful of peanuts
-10 coriander leaves

Cook the chicken until browned on one side. Flip the chicken over and add the peanuts. Give it an occasional stir so you don't burn the peanuts - you just want them to brown a little.

Ignore that cheeky leaf that sneaked in that picture  ^^.
Meanwhile lay out your salad leaves. Dice the tomatoes and scatter over each plate. Half and thinly slice the avocado and delicately lay over the plate.

When the chicken is cooked through and the peanuts are browned plate them up.

Now it's time to add the amazing dressing. I put a lot of it on my plate; you probably don't need to be so liberal (I'm just greedy, okay?!).

Top with the coriander leaves.

Et voila!

Enjoy the best salad I've ever eaten. I know you're going to love it too,
