2 tsps sesame seeds

2 tsps salt

1 clove garlic, bruise

5 stalks coriander

4 chicken breast fillets

1 head butter lettuce, tear into 5-cm pieces

200 g broccoli, cut into small florets, dip into hot boiling water for 1 min and rinse in cold water

100 g snow peas

1 Lebanese cucumber, peel, halve and slice (use local cucumber, if unavailable)

2 sticks celery, trim and slice

1 small red onion, slice thinly


80 ml olive oil

60 ml white wine vinegar

1. tbsps soy sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

2 tbsps caster sugar


1Add sesame seeds to a wok; cook without oil, stirring over medium fire, until seeds are toasted lightly. Remove from pan.

2Half-fill the same wok with water; add salt, garlic and coriander. Bring to boil; add chicken, reduce fire to low. Cook, covered, in barely simmering water for about 10 mins or until chicken is just cooked through, turning halfway. Remove chicken from pan; cover, stand 5 mins before slicing or pulling apart into pieces. Discard remaining contents in wok.

3Meanwhile, combine lettuce, broccoli, snow peas, cucumber, celery and onion in a large bowl. Divide between serving bowls. Top with chicken, drizzle with sesame dressing, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
