Paleo 1 Minute Asian Chicken salad – a delicious Chinese Chicken Salad recipe.

You know those lazy summer days when you just don’t want to turn on the stove and spend time in a hot kitchen. This 1 Minute Asian Chicken salad might just solve your problem.

It’s quick, delicious, and nutritious!

This salad is widely known in Taiwan and China. Traditionally it uses a type of Asian vinegar called black vinegar. It’s not the greatest ingredient for us because of its chemical and sugar content. Here I made it Paleo, Whole30, and Keto friendly, and as always, without losing a dish’s authentic taste.


I poached the chicken breast and seasoned it lightly for flavoring. If you opt for a store bought rotisserie chicken, choose one that’s seasoned with salt and pepper or herb flavor so that it won’t clash with the dressing.

Watch the 1 Minute Asian Chicken Salad below and share the video with your friends and family.

This 1 Minute Asian Chicken Salad might just be your No. 1 chicken salad that you simply can’t miss this summer!
