Warm Asian Chopped Chicken Salad is a light meal you can serve any time of the year. The chicken is deliciously flavoured with sticky teriyaki sauce and then served over lightly cooked veggies. Everything in this warm salad is accented with a tasty Asian inspired sauce made with tamari sauce, honey, ginger, garlic and sesame oil. And the best part, this salad is Keto-friendly.

What I love about this warm salad is, all you need is 30 minutes from start to finish.
