Ingredients

-

  • 250 g smooth or crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into long shreds
  • 3 spring onions, cut into long shreds
  • 1/2 cucumber, deseeded and cut into long shreds
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 4 tsp sesame seeds

Tips and Suggestions

Tana poaches her chicken breasts in simmering water or chicken stock for about 20 minutes, until cooked through.

Method

1. Spoon the peanut butter into a heatproof bowl, add 2 tablespoons water, the chilli sauce and both oils and stir through. Sit the bowl over a pan of boiling water, as it warms it will soften to a pouring consistency.

2. Shred the chicken breasts and set aside.

3. Put all the vegetables in a bowl and stir through the rice vinegar. Arrange on a serving plate, put the shredded chicken on top and spoon over the peanut sauce generously. Finish by sprinkling over the sesame seeds.
