Carb-Wise: Chinese-Style Chicken Salad

with Rainbow Quinoa, Cashews & Crunchy Veg

Cooking time

25 minutes




640 /serving

So delicious it’ll be gone real quick, without a shred of evidence—meat or veg. Chicken breasts are pan-seared in sweet, gingery, sesame spices until dripping with tasty juices and ready to be shredded. With smart knifework, radishes and scallion are thinly sliced to join shredded cabbage, carrot matchsticks and soft two-tone quinoa. Use Chinese-inspired flavours of sesame and ponzu to unite the ingredients, and cashews to ignite some crackle.

Cook the quinoa
Using a strainer, rinse the quinoa. In a medium pot, combine the quinoa, 1 cup water (double for 4 portions) and ⅓ of the spices; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 16 to 18 min., until tender. Add ½ the sesame oil. Fluff and set aside to cool.

Cook & shred the chicken
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a shallow bowl. Using two forks, shred the chicken.
