Donal Skehan’s South Asian marinade adds a kick to his colourful salad
Method1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl, add the chicken strips and mix through.
2. Cover and place in the fridge while you prepare the salad and dressing. In a small bowl, whisk all the ingredients for the dressing together until combined.
3. Place the Chinese cabbage, carrots, red onion and sugar snap peas in a large salad bowl. Add half the dressing and combine until all the vegetables are well coated.
4. Heat the sunflower oil in a frying pan. Remove the chicken strips from the marinade and fry until golden brown and cooked through, about 2-3
minutes on each side.
5. Serve the salad in individual bowls topped with the chicken, a sprinkling of chopped peanuts, a little chopped coriander and an extra drizzle of the dressing.
