Preparation

Mix peanut butter, vinegar, and chile garlic sauce in a glass bowl. Microwave for 20 - 30 seconds to soften beanut butter if needed. Add mayonnaise and sesame oil then blend thoroughly with a fork or whisk.

Mix slaw ingredients together in a large bowl and add 1/2 of the dressing. Toss until all veggies are coated. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes (up to 2 hours) tossing occasionally. Add a bit more dressing as needed to keep surfaces moist but not sloppy wet.

While slaw is marinating, heat chicken in 425F oven until heated through and lightly crisped.

Fill a teacup or ramekin with slaw. Pack it in lightly then place a serving place on top and invert the dish. Carefully remove the ramekin to leave a mound of slaw. Place the chicken nuggets around the mound of slaw, garnish with crushed peanuts and a lime wedge.
