How to make Thai chicken salad

  1. Boil the chicken in a pan with a pinch of salt. This should take about 15 mins on a medium flame. Check once.
  2. Once the chicken is boiled. Let it cool. Shred the chicken with your hands into small pieces. Place it in a bowl.
  3. Now add all the ingredients except for the peanuts and chillies. Mix well. Make sure that the salad is not too liquidy before adding the coconut milk.

My Tip:

I added a spoon full of mayo for that thick consistency!
