This dish, a mix between a warm salad and stir-fry is a fresh tasting Thai treat! Chicken is of course packed with protein and broccoli is full of antioxidants including vitamin C and beta-carotene, it’s also a source of folic acid important for many of the body’s metabolic processes. Poaching the chicken means the meat will remain moist and tender.
Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the chicken breasts, still whole with a pinch of salt and cook for 10 mins, then turn off the heat and leave the chicken to poach for a further 15 minutes.
While that’s cooking, mix up the dressing ingredients and set to one side.
Remove chicken from the pan and shred the meat.
Steam the broccoli with a little water in a saucepan or you can use the microwave in the same way.
Combine the broccoli with the other chopped veg and the chicken then pour over the dressing and mix well.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds and a drizzle of sesame oil.
Tip – to make this dish super quick and easy, used cooked king prawns in place of the chicken and save yourself 15 mins
