Thaï style salad with chicken

I’ve been sick as a dog and I wanted something light but filling for dinner. This was perfect and will probably be joining a heavy rotation this summer.

Ingredients:
2 boneless chicken breast
1 tea spoon curry spices of your choice
1/3 cup cashew
2 cups bean sprouts
1 cup snow peas
1 red bell pepper
1 bunch of green onions
1-2 ripe mangoes, to taste
2-3 tablespoon fish sauce
1 table spoon soy sauce
1 tea spoon sambal olek (or chili sauce of your choice)
2 tablespoon brown sugar
juice of 2-3 limes
1-2 table spoon peanut oil
Sesame oil (to taste)
Thaï basil (optional)
ingredients

1. In a small dry skillet, roast the cashew over medium heat until fragrant. Set aside to cool.

9. Mix the rest of the ingredients together to make the dressing. You’ll have way more dressing then you need. I used maybe 5 tablespoon for the whole bowl?
Keep the rest in the fridge for later use.

10. Toss the salad together and portion out into bowls.
I had some Thaï basil in the fridge so I added some as a garnish, no big deal if you don’t have any.
