A fresh and fragrant chicken salad.

Ingredients and Method


        • 5 handfuls of wombok lettuce (about 1/2 a wombok lettuce), shredded
        • 1 handful of bean sprouts
        • 1 small Lebanese cucumber, cut into wide strips with a peeler
        • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
        • 1 handful coriander, roughly chopped
        • 1 handful mint leaves, roughly chopped
        • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
        • 3 tbsp peanuts

Prepare the above salad ingredients and put into a salad bowl.



      • 2 chicken breasts
      • 4 kaffir lime leaves
      • 1 tsp mineral sea salt

Place chicken in a baking tray and then half fill the tray with water. Add salt and kaffir limes leaves (torn up a little to release their flavour).  Let sit for about half an hour.

Then transfer the tray into a  pre-heated oven and bake chicken at 180 C for approximately 35 minutes or until cooked through.

In the meantime, make the dressing.



    • 1 1/2 tbs fish sauce
    • 1 1/2 tbs sesame oil
    • 1 1/2 tbs fresh lime juice
    • 1 fresh red chilli, finely diced
    • 1 tsp garlic, minced

Add all ingredients into a screw top jar and shake well until combined.


To Serve 

Once the chicken is cooked, shred into thin slices. Add to a bowel with prepared salad, top with desired amount of dressing and lightly toss. Garnish with some extra sesame seeds and coriander.

Chicken can be served warm or cold.

Serves two.
