  • 1 5-oz boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups bean sprouts
  • 1 1/2 cups peeled and shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp natural unsalted peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 large endive heads, trimmed and separated into leaves (about 18 leaves)
  • 1/3 cup roasted unsalted peanuts, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, place chicken breast and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 25 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Set aside until cool enough to handle, then shred with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine bean sprouts, carrots, cilantro, lime and ginger. In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, oil and vinegar.
  3. Arrange endive leaves on a platter. Fill leaves with bean sprouts mixture. Top with chicken then drizzle peanut sauce over top. Garnish with peanuts.
