We’ve broken this Thai Chicken Salad recipe up into two recipes, each cooking the chicken differently.

One is the normal way using an oven-top method, and the other uses a BBQ.

The BBQ one is a favorite of ours as it adds a slightly different flavor, and is 6 calories less due to no stock being used.
