Simple Chicken Salad


After having stuffed in so much food during the Chinese New Year holidays, I made myself a very simple salad.  Had to make do with what was available from my larder and it turned out to be a satisfying and refreshing lunch.






Not much of a recipe for this dish, just personal preference for what you'd like to put into your salad and dressing is totally up to your wishes.  But for my own reference I append below what and how I made this salad.


Simple Chicken Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken thighs, deboned and skin removed
  • 1 small carrot, cut into strips
  • 2 sticks of celery, sliced
  • 1 small cucumber, cut into strips
  • some fresh Coriander leaves
Dressing
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and chopped
  • 2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1 Tbsp chicken stock
  • Sugar and fish sauce to taste
Garnishing
  • Peanuts, roasted and finely chopped
  • Lightly roasted sesame seeds
  • Bird eye chillies, finely chopped (optional)
Method
  1. Season the chicken with some salt and pepper for about 30 mins.
  2. Steam the chicken, take out the meat and shred to fine pieces.  Set aside the stock.
  3. Combine the carrot and cucumber strips, celery and coriander leaves in a mixing bowl.  Toss in the chicken.  Mix well.
  4. To make the dressing, place the sweet chillli and fish sauce, chicken stock, sugar and lime juice in a bowl and whisk till well combined.
  5. Pour the dressing over the chicken and toss to coat thoroughly.  Place on a serving plate.
  6. Sprinkle on the peanuts, sesame seeds and bird eye chillies.
  7. Serve immediately.
Note :   This salad can be made in advance, keep chilled and sprinkle on the garnishing just before serving.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Sweet potato steamed cake ~ 红薯蒸蛋糕

After making the  Okinawan black sugar steamed cakes, I  made these and this time  added in some sweet potatoes.  These are moist, not overly sweet and can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast or served with  a hot pot of brewed tea to snack on.
