Chicken Salad

Sokehah Cheah | 11:05 AM | | | |

Whipped up this simple salad for dinner recently, something light and refreshing after having a heavy lunch.  I  enjoyed it tremendously and look forward to concocting  more of  such one-dish meal in future.

Isn't it colourful?  Every mouthful of these crunchy vege with some protein is just wholesome, healthy and nutritious, more so if you're on a diet!

  • 1 chicken breast meat  - skin removed, poached and shredded
  • 1 carrot  - shredded
  • Cabbage  -  shredded
  • 1 big onion  - sliced
  • 6 limau kasturi/calamansi
  • 1  tsp salt or to taste
  • 4  tsp sugar or to taste
  • 1 red chilli -  cut
  • 2  bird eye chillies  - cut
  • Peanuts  - roasted and chopped
  1. Season the chicken breast with some salt and pepper, set aside for an hour.
  2. Poach the chicken in hot water till cooked, cool and shred to pieces.
  3. Dissolve the salt and sugar with the limau kasturi juice, set aside.
  4. Mix the chicken with the shredded carrot and cabbage, add in the onion slices, red and bird eye chillies.  Toss up.
  5. Pour in the limau kasturi syrup, mix well.
  6. Top up with the chopped roasted peanuts.
  7. Serve immediately.

  16. Hi Cheah,

    You just reminded me of one of the most delicious salad!! This is my favourite summer salad because it is so light and tasty. I add julienne celery, sesame oil, chilli oil and crunchy jelly fish and loads of roasted sesame seed and fresh coriander leaves to the one I make. Oh, I can taste summer though we heading into winter here in Sydney :(
