2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the chicken

  • Let the Thai simmer sauce blend come to room temperature.
In a medium sauce pot, add the chicken and enough lightly salted water to cover by 2 inches, making sure the chicken is separated, and bring to a boil. Cook over high heat until opaque and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the chicken to a medium bowl to cool, then using a fork, shred the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Starting with ¼ cup [½ cup], add the Thai simmer sauce blend, plus more to taste if needed; toss to coat. Save any remaining simmer sauce blend for serving.
While the chicken cooks, start preparing the slaw.


Make the frisée and apple slaw

  • Trim the root end from the frisée; coarsely chop the leaves. [Coarsely chop 1 head frisée; save the remaining frisée for another use.]
  • Core and cut the apple into matchsticks.
  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for garnish.
  • Cut the lime into wedges for garnish.
In a large bowl, toss together the frisée, apple, onion, cashew-lime dressing blend, 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil, and half the cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Crisp the tortillas

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, add the tortillas and cook, turning once, until crisp, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt. Add more oil between batches if needed.


Transfer the tortillas to individual plates. Spoon on the chicken, top with the frisée and apple slaw, and garnish with the remaining cilantro. Serve the lime wedges and any remaining simmer sauce blend on the side.
