Spicy Miso Chicken Salad

Total Time20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 large shallot, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1- inch knob fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 ½ lbs ground chicken or turkey (preferably dark meat)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal, green and white parts separated
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha, or more to taste
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped mint leaves, plus more for garnish
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 2 heads butter lettuce, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped dry roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1 lime cut into wedges, for serving


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring, until tender, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the ground chicken, salt, pepper, and white parts of the green onions. Cook, breaking up the meat with the edge of a spoon until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add in the sesame oil, miso paste, sriracha, and coconut aminos and stir until well combined and the miso paste is well incorporated into the mixture.
  • Stir in the mint, cilantro, and green parts of the onion.
  • To serve, divide the lettuce in the bottom of a bowl. Spoon the miso chicken mixture over the top. Garnish with a little more mint and cilantro, a sprinkle of the peanuts for a crunch, and serve with a wedge of lime.
