Elevate your weekday lunch salad with a splash of Thai flavor in this Satay Chicken Salad!

Start by coating the chicken tenders in a rub of turmeric, maple syrup, salt, pepper, and olive oil and bake in a 400-degree oven for 20 minutes. While the chicken is cooking pull together the salad by tossing the red onion, cucumber and chickpeas with your favorite salad greens.

Make a super easy dressing by blending together the red curry paste, peanut butter, maple syrup and a little water, to create a decadent peanut sauce. 

Once the chicken satays are done and cooled, layer them over the crunchy salad and drizzle over small amounts of the peanut-curry dressing to pull the salad together. 

Serve this satay chicken salad with some warm pita and enjoy the smooth flavors of Thailand for lunch!
