Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Hot Peanut Chicken Salad might be just the main course you are searching for. One serving contains 1571 calories, 41g of protein, and 35g of fat. This dairy free recipe serves 4 and costs $2.42 per serving. If you have garlic, green onion, lettuce, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. To use up the white vinegar you could follow this main course with the Vinegar Pecan Pie as a dessert. Only a few people made this recipe, and 1 would say it hit the spot. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 45 minutes. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 34%. This score is rather bad. Similar recipes include Hot Chicken Salad, Nashville Hot Chicken Dip, and Peanut Chicken Salad.

Instructions

  1. Mix all peanut sauce ingredients. Set aside. Cut chicken in thin strips, marinate in soy sauce and garlic for 30 minutes. Stir-fry chicken in oil until no longer pink, 3-5 minutes.
  2. To serve, mound lettuce, top with noodles. Arrange chicken over noodles, drizzle with sauce. Garnish with chopped green onions, peanuts, and cilantro if desired.
  3. NOTES : I usually use more than 5 oz of noodles (more like 1/2 pound). You can use spaghetti if you can't find the chow mein noodles, although it is not as tasty. I also usually double the peanut sauce recipe.
  4. This is an easy recipe. It can even be made with leftover chicken. The sauce can be used for almost any salad or stir-fry.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • To make this recipe more nutritious, skip the iceberg lettuce and choose some darker leafy greens higher in vitamin K like romaine, kale, spinach, etc.

  • Many people will tell you to remove the skin on your chicken to cut down on fat. This is true, but if you like the taste, leave it on! You're only gaining a little fat for a lot of flavor. Plus, a little over half of the fat in chicken skin is monounsatured fat (that's a heart-healthy kind) and the notion that saturated fat is unhealthy is being questioned too. So in our opinion: dig in, skin and all!

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • If you normally rinse your chicken?stop! You could be spreading bacteria around your kitchen and it isn't really necessary.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

Green Tips

  • Choose pasture-raised chicken if it is available. If it is not at your supermarket, visit a farmers' market and ask around.

  • According to the Non-GMO Project, about 90% of the canola oil in the United States is made from genetically modified rapeseed, so if this issue is important to you be sure to buy certified organic or certified GMO-free canola oil!
