Fuel Kick-Start Summer With This Hi-Protein Thai Almond Chicken Salad Recipe Author: Tough Mudder May 29, 2018 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Summer is salad season—but let’s face it, when you’re training for a Tough Mudder, some wimpy, wilted pile of greens (or hell, even the freshest picks from the Farmers Market) isn’t going to cut it. To the rescue: This hearty, protein-packed Thai Almond Chicken Salad from Kevin Curry of FitMenCook. Each serving has a whopping 46 grams of protein, with just 363 calories, 17 grams carbs, and 13 grams fat. As Curry writes of his favorite go-to summer salad, “hi-protein, low-carb never looked and tasted so good.” Ingredients for 4 large servings: 1.5 pouds raw chicken breasts Salad 5 cups (425g) broccoli slaw (mixture of broccoli, cabbage and carrots)2 clusters baby bok choy1/3 cup chopped mint Almond Sauce 5 tablespoons raw almond butter (no salt added, best to purchase the kind with oil in it)3 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos (or coconut aminos or low sodium soy sauce)2 tablespoons rice vinegarjuice from 1/2 lime (or whole lime if an extra tangy flavor is desired)1 tablespoon raw organic honeypinches of red pepper flakes (as needed or desired for heat)tablespoons of water if needed to make the sauce thinner Garnish shaved almondscilantrored chile pepper Directions: 1. Spray a nonstick skillet with coconut oil and set on medium heat. Toss in the chicken breasts without seasoning since the flavor will come from the salad and the almond dressing. Once the chicken breasts are completely cooked, set them aside and allow them to cool down a bit. 2. Combine all the ingredients for the almond sauce together in a bowl and whisk together. Add a few tablespoons of water, if needed in order to make the sauce thinner. 3. Chop up the chicken breasts, bok choy and mint. 4. In a large bowl, add the ingredients for the salad plus the (cooled and cooked) chopped chicken breasts. Mix together. 5. Divide the salad mixture into four equal servings. For each serving add one-fourth of the almond sauce (pro tip: if you’re meal prepping or planning to eat this later, don’t add the sauce until you’re ready to eat). 6. Garnish with cilantro, shaved almonds and sliced red chile peppers. Enjoy!
