This is my family’s favourite salad; it’s filling, tasty but incredibly healthy.

For the dressing

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons caster sugar
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 cube chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon sesame oil

For the salad

Quantity Ingredient
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 chicken breast
2 tablespoons sake
1/2 medium iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced
1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
A few wedges tomato
a few thin slices red onion

Method

  1. Put everything for the dressing except the sesame oil into a saucepan with 8 tbsp of water. Place over a low heat and bring to the boil. Stir, making sure both the sugar and chicken stock cube completely dissolve. Remove from the heat, let cool, then add the sesame oil, cover and chill in the fridge until needed.
  2. Sprinkle the salt on the chicken on both sides and place on a heatproof dish. Add the sake.
  3. Put 2 cm of cold water in a large saucepan and add a trivet that emerges above the level of the water. Place the chicken dish on the trivet. Cover the saucepan.
  4. Place the saucepan on the hob and cook on a medium heat for 25 minutes from start to finish.
  5. Remove the dish from the saucepan, and leave until cool enough to handle. Tear the chicken into strips.
  6. Put the lettuce on a plate and arrange the cucumber, tomato and red onion over. Put the chicken on top. Toss with the sesame dressing and serve.
