Southeast Asian chicken salad with sesame-lime dressing
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Paleo, Lean & Clean
Allspice-scented lean chicken stars in this fast paleo chicken salad, inspired by the vibrant flavors of the herb-packed Thai meat salad known as larb.
In your bag
- 2 to 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 10 ounces total)
- ½ teaspoon allspice
- 1 lime
- 3 scallions
- 2 ounces dried apricots
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- ¼ teaspoon red chile flakes (optional)
- ¼ cup roasted cashews
- 1 cucumber
- 2 or 3 sprigs fresh mint
- 3 or 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
- 5 ounces baby greens (such as kale or spinach)
Make It Leaner
Cook the chicken thighs in just 1 tablespoon oil to slash 60 calories and 7 grams of fat per serving. To cut an additional 40 calories and 4 grams of fat per serving, use only half the cashews.
Despite the name, allspice is not a blend of spices but is the dried berry of the Pimenta dioica tree, native to Jamaica and Central America. It tastes like a mild blend of clove and nutmeg, a flavor you might recognize from jerk seasoning.
