Coriander, ginger, and sesame work magic with chicken. This salad is simple, high in protein and very healthy.

Getting started
2

Cook the sesame seeds in a frying pan over a medium heat until toasted.

3

Preheat a sandwich grill. Slice the chicken fillets in half lengthways. Smear both sides of the chicken with garlic and ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Cook in the sandwich press for 2 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside to rest.

(Alternatively, cook the chicken under a grill or with extra virgin olive oil in a pan).

4

Meanwhile, cook the snowpeas in a saucepan of boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and refresh under cold running water.

5

Toss the snowpeas with the sesame oil.

6

In a bowl combine coriander leaves, sesame seeds, onion and chilli. Slice chicken fillets and serve on the snowpeas.

7

Top with the sesame and coriander.

8

Serve immediately.

Add more chilli as desired for a hotter kick to the salad.

A touch of sweet chilli sauce also gives this a sweet element (but obviously not as healthy).
