This is a versatile dish to utilise a roast chicken… works great either as a mid week dinner or as a beautiful salad for a Sunday lunch.

1. Dressing: combine the lime juice, chilli flakes, sugar and oil. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Chicken: carve and segment the chicken. Cut each breast into three pieces. Take thigh away form each leg.

3. Assemble salad by combining remaining ingredients, dress and toss to combine. Serve on a platter with roast chicken pieces placed on top and around the salad.

  • I used palm sugar instead of caster as I am not into refined anything as well as replacing the soy with baby braid beans quickly blanched and refreshed …. my salad leaves were mizuma, japanese spinach, corn salad and rocket and the flavours worked well … great lunch sugggestion thnx for the inspiration.
