Recipe: Asian Style Chicken Salad {+ A GIVEAWAY!}

Healthy Asian Chicken Salad with Marinated Chicken Breast and Honey Sesame Dressing Recipe - low fat, gluten free, clean eating friendly, grain free, paleo

It's now February and we're soaking up every last second of summer by having as many barbeques and picnics with our family and friends as possible.

For the last two weeks, we've been sharing our favourite Asian Inspired Barbeque recipes thanks to our friends at Chang's who make it easy to create authentic Asian food at home. First there was our Asian Noodle Salad with Creamy Peanut Dressing, followed by these delicious Asian Inspired Chicken Burgers with Creamy Mayonnaise and Asian Slaw and today I wanted to wrap up the recipes with a giveaway and this delicious Asian Chicken Salad Recipe (with the most amazing Healthy Asian Marinated Chicken Recipe!)

Gluten Free Asian Chicken Salad with Marinated Chicken Breast and Honey Sesame Dressing Recipe - low fat, gluten free, clean eating friendly, grain free, paleo

The salad is the perfect mix of colours and flavours with fresh carrot, purple and white cabbage, baby spinach leaves, shallots and a deeeeeeeeelicious honey sesame dressing with a touch of orange juice for sweetness and that perfect salty sweet balance.

The chicken marinade is one that is so easy but so impressive - with a mix of orange juice, honey, rice wine vinegar, Chang's gluten free soy and Chang's sesame oil for an incredible flavour hit and a sticky, caramelised coating.

But let me share this delicious recipe with you! {PLUS the giveaway!}
