This is still a fairly experimental dish, but the idea is similar to the duck salad I posted earlier this month, but without the noodles. It’s really easy, quick and spicey! If you have a cold this will really clear those sinuses!

Spicy Chicken and Cucumber Salad

  1. 2 Chicken Breasts finely sliced
  2. Enough flour to coat the chicken slices
  3. Salt and Pepper
  4. 1/2 Cucumber finely sliced length ways
  5. 2 Peppers finely sliced
  6. 1 Red Onion finely sliced
  7. 6 Radishes finely sliced
  8. The juice of 1 Lime
  9. 3 tablespoons of Rice Wine Vinegar
  10. 1 tablespoon of Fish Sauce
  11. 1 Teaspoon of sesame oil
  12. 2 Cloves of Garlic very finely chopped
  13. Half a red chili very finely chopped
  14. Thumb sized piece of ginger peeled and very finely chopped

Wow fourteen that’s a lot! STAY WITH ME! Mix the flour with salt and pepper and coat the thinly sliced chicken. Fry them in a very hot pan with vegetable oil until nice and brown, leave to the side.

In a large bowl, combine the lime juice, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, sesame oil, garlic, chili, and ginger. This should be to your taste so add something, subtract something be my guest! Add to the bowl, the cucumber, radish, red onion and red pepper. Mix the all the ingredients together in the spicy dressing.

Serve the spicy cucumber salad with the chicken strips on top and enjoy!

    This looks awesome! I’m making wraps for lunch and will be using a variation of this recipe and some leftover roasted chicken to fill them!
