Asian Chicken Salad

A crunchy and colourful chicken salad with lots of flavour.  Quick and easy to make too!

It’s salad season and I wanted something slightly asian inspired with chicken for the Chief Taster.  It’s almost like an uncooked stir fry dish, but disguised as a salad!   He enjoyed the flavours and crunch of the salad, along with the bright colours.   I only used basil with this as he does not like coriander (cilantro) much, but I think the dish would be great with it.   If you had some shredded chicken you could use that, but I poached some chicken breast strips in order to keep the chicken moist as a contrast against the crunchy salad ingredients.
