My lunch can sometimes be as simple as having a salad with some chicken in it. They are so easy to make, and takes about 5 minutes to just whip it up. Ok ok, may be 10 minutes.
Romaine lettuce are best for me - crispy, yet tender. Baby cucumbers are a must. They just make salads so much fun! Sometimes, adding a little bit of red capsicums, corns, onions, celery, or even carrots makes salad all the healthier.
With all the veges, I need some meat to balance up the meal. and make my lunch more filling. Chicken meat are the best - easy to cook and tastes good with almost any type of flavouring - teriyaki, bbq, thai style, or even just plain boiled.
Salad dressing for me - I love Caesar's. But sometimes, Thai works well for my sweet n' sour taste buds. This time, I tried something new and I think it tastes great...
With a bottle of honey and mustard marinade, I decided to have a very simple sesame & soy dressing. Chicken is cut to small pieces, and marinate with honey and mustard for about 10 minutes. The marinade I used was this one from Masterfoods. I added a little more honey to it, just for that sweetness to the chicken. The marinade was not bad, I actually liked it!
The dressing was simple, pour 3 tablespoon of olive oil in a small bowl, add a few drops of sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce. Mix well.
Simply fry the chicken with a little bit of olive oil, let it cook for 5 minutes on each side, and set aside. Get your greens all ready and place them in a serving bowl. Place the chicken in the middle of the salad, and sprinkle the salad dressing very lightly around the bowl. Lastly, sprinkle some white sesame seeds all over.
Note: I did not sprinkle the dressing yet when I took my pictures... but it looked really good with the dressing!
