Red Chicken Salad

 
Red chicken salad , fresh garden salad topped with hand seasoned and lovingly roasted chicken finished off with a balsamic dressing.
Another delicious sounding Thai recipe .Easy and healthy , prep time does not include overnight refrigeration time. 

Ingredients
Serves 4
4 boneless chicken breasts
2 tbsp red curry paste
2 tbsp vegetable or peanut oil
1 cabbage , scredded
175 g pak choi , torn into
   large pieces
1/2 savoy cabbage , scredded
2 shallots , chopped finely
2 garlic cloves , crushed
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
2 tbsp Thai soy sauce

Method
1 . Slash and flesh of the chicken several times and rub the curry paste into each cut . Cover and chill overnight .

2 .Cook in a heavy based saucepan over medium heat or on a griddle pan for 5-6 minutes , turning once or twice ,until cooked through . Keep warm .

3 . Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or large frying pan and stir fry the cabbage , pak choi and savoy cabbage until just  wilted . Add the remaining oil , shallots and garlic and stir fry until just tender , but not browned .Add lemon juice ,chilli sauce and soy . Remove from the heat .

4 .Arrange the leaves on 4 serving  plates . Slice the  chicken , arrange on the salad greens and drizzle the hot dressing over . Serve immediately .

Tip for chicken salad:
- The chicken : Chicken salad needs chicken obviously .But what part of the chicken used can vary .Traditional chicken salad will use chicken breasts , usually poached so they'll still be juicy and tender , and cut up into squares .Other varieties will use the dark chicken meat .Still more simply tell you to pick apart a whole cooked chicken for a mixture of dark and light chicken meat .It's really up to you and your taste and health needs .Chicken breasts will yield a chicken salad with slightly less fat than a mixed or dark meat chicken salad .Chicken breasts can be drier , though , and require more dressing .I usually only make chicken salad with leftover chicken so my chicken salad will vary with whatever we had for dinner -whether it was chicken breasts or a whole roasted chicken .
