Notes

Add 100-150 gms/4-5 oz of shredded chicken per person to this recipe to make an Asian Chicken Slaw.
Switch peanuts for almonds, sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds.
Add vegetables such as zucchini strips, kale, celery and green beans for variation. If carrot is not off limits, shredded carrot goes well.
This recipe was developed to go with Chicken Satay Sticks and the flavors go really well together. Check out the recipe at https://ketohh.com/low-carb-chicken-satay-skewers/
