Sesame Chicken Salad

SERVES: 2 PREP: 15 minutes TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

The most satisfying salad you'll ever have.

You know the feeling you get after you eat a salad and you’re hungry an hour later? Not with this one. This protein-packed salad has super tender grilled chicken, chickpeas, butter lettuce, and double crunch from carrots and watermelon radishes—all coated in a creamy sesame dressing. It’s different from the sesame chicken you know and love from Chinese takeout, but it could be your new favorite…

For the marinade/dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon tahini

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger (or ½ teaspoon ground dried)

  • 2 teaspoons sriracha

  • ½ lime, zested and juiced

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise (preferably Kewpie)

For the salad:

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast (2 small or 1 large breast)

  • 2 cups baby butter lettuce greens

  • cup cooked chickpeas

  • 1 small carrot, sliced

  • 1 small watermelon radish, halved then thinly sliced horizontally

  • 2 tablespoons sliced scallion greens

  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
