Directions

1Mix the tahini with half of the honey in a small bowl.
2Rub the chicken thighs with olive oil and sea salt and heat a skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken for 5 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked through. Brush the tahini mixture on both sides of the chicken and cook for an additional 1 minute per side. Remove and set aside. Once cool, chop into cubes.
3Mix the sesame oil, coconut aminos, lime juice and the remaining honey together.
4Add the cabbage, bell pepper, cashews, and pumpkin seeds to a large bowl and toss with the sesame oil dressing. Top with the chicken and cilantro, if using. Divide evenly between bowls and enjoy!

Additional Toppings:Sesame seeds, slivered onions, peanuts, sunflower seeds, and/or hemp seeds.
