Wedding Diet - Sesame chicken salad
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.
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
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.
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.
