Easy to throw together, this salad is always a hit.
2 pkg (8.8 oz each) ready-to-serve long grain rice
2/3 cup Thai peanut sauce*
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tbsp water
1 pkg (16 oz) coleslaw mix
2 pkg (6 oz each) ready-to-use grilled chicken breast strips (or make your own, of course)
1/2 cup torn cilantro leaves
1-1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts, crushed
Prepare rice according to package directions; remove to a large bowl. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the peanut sauce, oil and water until blended; set aside.
Add the coleslaw mix, chicken and cilantro to the rice. Drizzle with peanut sauce mixture; toss to combine. Sprinkle with peanuts.
*I often make my own peanut sauce by mixing together peanut butter, soy sauce, cayenne pepper and hot water--play with the ratios until you get it just right for your family.
