We're crazy in love with our Cascade Mushroom Mix, featured in this Asian chicken salad with just the right embellishments. We put the mushroom mix in the marinade, where the umami flavor magic made the meat meatier. For this Asian chicken salad, we added carrots, cashews, and bok choy for crunch and added flavor. Adding Gomasio for the garnish adds a delightful salty toasted sesame flair.

Directions

Combine the avocado oil, toasted sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, apple cider vinegar and Cascade Mushroom Mix in a heavy duty 1 gallon ziplock bag. In a small bowl, reserve two tablespoons of the marinade for finishing.

Add the chicken thighs to the marinade in the bag, and marinate at least one hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Transfer the chicken and marinade to a glass baking dish and bake, uncovered for 30-40 minutes, until it is cooked through.

For the Chicken Salad:

When the chicken is cool enough to handle, cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and transfer to a large bowl.
