Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad

Home | Recipes | Sides & Salads

This chicken salad recipe is packed full of fresh, bold flavours and it’s the perfect way to use up leftover roast chicken. It also has the added bonus of being uber healthy making it ideal for a light, low-carb lunch or dinner.

We gave our salad dressing a delicious smoky Chipotle Paste kick which works very well alongside the other classic South-East Asian flavours like fish sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, ginger, mint and coriander.
