  2. In a large bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, siracha sauce, rice vinegar, olive oil, water, garlic, peanut butter, ginger, garlic powder, cilantro, peanuts, and slaw.
  3. Once the chicken has cooled, use two forks and pull the chicken apart to shred it. Add the chicken to the dressing mixture. Mix well.
