Absolutely delicious! Used 1 T canola oil and 1 T sesame oil, a little extra soy and chili sauce, and left out the salt. I just finished a bowl of it for lunch and even though I'm stuffed, I wish I had packed more. Yum! Thanks for posting this, Viking!

An excellent recipe that produced a very flavorful and hearty chicken salad. I cooked the chicken the night before to make preparation a little easier. I had to use salted peanuts because I really dislike the taste of unsalted but that is the only change I made. My husband thought it was delicious as well. Thanks for posting this Cooking Light recipe.
