(Grilled) Teriyaki Chicken Salad will have you saying OH MY YUM! This to live for salad is packed with cool, crisp veggies, sweet pineapple, salty macadamia nuts and toasted coconut all doused with fresh tangy Pineapple Sesame Dressing! But the best part is all that freshness WITH juicy, savory Sweet Chili Teriyaki Chicken and the Teriyaki Sauce that you you drizzle all over your salad!
I was so in love with the Sweet Chili Teriyaki Chicken I posted earlier this week, that I had to surround it with my other loves, (AKA pineapple, coconut and macadamia nuts!) and make it a complete drool worthy meal. The salad is hearty and healthy and the answer to your weeknight dinner dilemma or makes a beautiful, delicious party salad as well. I also love to pack all the leftover Teriyaki Chicken Salad into a wrap with some rice (my favorite food) for lunch the next day. The deliciousness that just keeps on giving…
Along with fresh pineapple, coconut and macadamia nuts, this Teriyaki Chicken Salad is packed with crunchy lettuce, bell peppers and carrots for a symphony of layered flavors and textures that perfectly enhance the main event of 5 Minute Prep Sweet Chili Teriyaki Chicken. The Chicken itself can be grilled or cooked in a skillet, and is oh so juicy infused with a delectable Sweet Chili Sauce teriyaki marinade for an explosion of flavor in every tender bite. And then comes more magic…
When I went to Outback a while ago, Patrick ordered their Blue Cheese Wedge Salad which is drizzled with both Blue Cheese dressing and Balsamic Glaze. The dual combination was so epic that I knew I wanted to make a salad drizzled with two dressings without double the work and this Teriyaki Chicken Salad is the perfect fit (and the perfect flavors). After you cook your chicken, you thicken some of the reserved marinade with cornstarch to create your Teriyaki Sauce that you slather all over your chicken AND drizzle all over your salad. Because you will want it all over your salad.
You then drizzle your salad with Fresh Pineapple Sesame Dressing made from pineapple, garlic, ginger honey, cider vinegar, toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds for a tangy, sweet and savory combination you will be be craving for days. Weeks.
