Wedding Diet - Sesame chicken salad

January 08, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

If you are trying to lose weight for your wedding and looking for a low calorie (300 calories) but tasty food, why not try and make a Sesame Chicken Salad?

I found this recipe on a BBC Website and it should take 10 minutes to make and it should serve 2 people.

Ingredients

2 skinless chicken breasts

85g frozen soya beans (I didn't use these, but you could if you like them)

1 large carrot, finely cut into thin matchsticks

4 spring onions, finely sliced

140g cherry tomatoes, halved

small bunch coriander, chopped

small handful Thai or ordinary basil leaves, chopped if large

85g herb or baby salad leaves

1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

 

This is a photo on what the ingredients looked like before I started making it for myself.

For the dressing

grated zest and juice 1 small lime

1 tsp fish sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

2 tsp sweet chilli sauce

 

Instructions

Put the chicken in a pan and pour over cold water to cover. Tip the soya beans into a steamer. Bring the pan to a gentle simmer, then cook the chicken for 10 mins with the beans above.

Meanwhile, mix the dressing ingredients in a large bowl. When the chicken is cooked, slice and toss in the dressing along with the beans, carrot, onions, tomatoes, coriander and basil. Mix really well, pile onto the salad leaves and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

 

Once it was finished, this is what it looked like.

 

Alternatives Instructions

You could actually just buy some salad dressing from a supermarket and I said before, I didn't use the Soya Beans.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
