Asian Chicken Salad with Bok Choy

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 15 mins
  • servings: 4




  • Coarse salt
  • 4 heads baby bok choy, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce (or 2 teaspoons soy sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, sliced crosswise
  • 3 ounces snow peas, thinly sliced lengthwise (1 cup)
  • 3 small shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, coarsely chopped

Cook's Note

Saving the chicken: To store, pull meat from bones, keeping chicken breasts whole and tearing dark meat into bite-size pieces (discard skin and bones). Refrigerate in separate airtight containers for up to 2 days.


  1. Step 1

    In a large pot, bring 1 inch salted water to a boil; add bok choy. Cover, and cook until tender, 3 to 5 minutes; drain, and let cool.

  2. Step 2

    In a bowl, whisk together lime juice, fish sauce, sugar, and cayenne. Add chicken, snow peas, and shallots; toss to combine. Top chicken mixture with mint, and serve alongside bok choy.

    This meal tasted like I was eating grass, except for the chicken. I would not make this again.
