Asian Peanut Chicken Salad

by Courtney Berg, RD

This chicken salad recipes replaces the mayo with plain Skyr or Greek yogurt for an extra punch of protein. You can tweak the recipe by replacing full fat peanut butter with PB2 (powdered peanut butter) or adjusting the amount of chicken added. I used carrots, shredded cabbage, and bell pepper to add volume, fibre, color, and a boost of micronutrients! If you are tight for time, try picking up a rotisserie chicken from your grocery store to decrease the total recipe preperation time.

Definitely not the best photo I have taken - but it might be my favorite recipe of all time!


  • 1 cup plain Skyr or Greek yogurt

  • 1/4 cup all-natural peanut butter or PB2*

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon fresh ground ginger

  • 12 oz pre-cooked chicken

  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup shredded carrots (100g)

  • 1 cup shredded cabbage (100g)

  • 3 green onions, diced

  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

  • salt and pepper


  1. Mix together the sauce ingredients including the yogurt, PB2 or all-natural peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, and fresh ginger. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Meausre out your desired portion of chicken (I used 12 oz.) and shred or dice it into small pieces. Mix it into the sauce.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients (peppers, shredded carrot, purple cabbage, green onions, and cilantro) and mix to combine

  4. Spread the chicken salad on a multigrain bun or lettuce wrap (if you prefer a lower carb version).

* PB2 is a lower fat powdered peanut butter. Find it at Costco, Coop, or supplement stores (like Herc's or Popeyes in Saskatoon). I used all-natural peanut butter for a higher fat version.
