Asian Style Cashew Chicken Salad with Sesame Soy Vinaigrette


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts fillets
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 heads of baby bok choy, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 3/4 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1 cup or a small bunch of rice noodles
  • vegetable oil for frying

For the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil


Preheat oil in a skillet or deep fryer to 375° for frying rice noodles.

Preheat a large skillet for chicken. Sprinkle salt and pepper over both sides of chicken breasts. Drizzle skillet with olive oil and cook chicken breasts until browned on each side and no longer pink in the middle over medium heat, about 15 minutes.

In two salad plates, layer chopped bok choy, sliced red pepper, chopped green onion, chopped cucumber and cashews.

In a small jar or bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, vinegar, sesame seeds and vegetable or olive oil. Whisk or shake well to combine. Pour dressing over salad.

Garnish salad with fried rice noodles and serve.
