Ingredients (serves 6 | makes 1 Large Salad)
- 1/2 Large Wombok or Chinese Cabbage (or a full small wombok)
- 1/2 Orange, peeled, seeded and cut into segments
- 1/2 cup Red Grapes, halved and seeded if required
- 1 large Chicken Breast (or 2 half breasts)
- 2 cups Chicken Stock
- 6 Spring Onions, peeled and very finely sliced
- 1 packet Chang's Crunchy Noodles (either thick or thin)
- 1/4 cup White Vinegar
- 1/4 cup Caster Sugar
- 2 tsp Sesame Oil
- 1/4 cup Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Light Soy or Rice Wine Vinegar
- 1/4 cup Lightly Toasted Nuts (Pine Nuts, Slivered Almonds) or Sesame Seeds or Chia Seeds
- 1/4 Yellow capsicum (or any colour really), finely sliced
- 1/4 cup Coriander, torn into small pieces
- Place the chicken stock along with 1/2 cup spring onions into a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Gently lower in the chicken breast and reduce to a gentle boil. Allow to simmer for 10 - 15 minutes or until cooked through.
- Meanwhile finely slice the Wombok (Chinese Cabbage) and place in a large bowl along with the spring onions, coriander and capsicum - mix well to combine.
- Mix the vinegar, caster sugar, soy/rice wine, sesame oil and olive oil together in a small bowl or cup and mix well until the sugar has dissolved.
- Remove the chicken breast from the stock once cooked through and allow to cool slightly. Then slice or tear the chicken into small pieces and allow to cool completely.
- Once the chicken is completely cooled and you are ready to serve, combine all the salad ingredients, the dressing and the chicken and mix well.
- Finally top with the crunchy noodles and the nuts/seeds if you are using and serve.
