Asian chicken salad

After one too many glasses of prosecco at a BBQ last night, I was feeling a little worse for wear this morning. So when lunchtime came around I was in need of a meal to make me feel more like a human being. With all the flavours of a take away to satisfy those hungover cravings but packed full of fresh healthy ingredients this salad was the perfect cure. Spicy and salty with crisp veggies and crunchy peanuts after a portion of this I was definitely feeling better.

In a small bowl add the sesame oil, gluten free soy sauce, fish sauce, honey, chilli flakes, crushed garlic and lime juice. Mix thoroughly and set aside.

Remove the skin and bones from the chicken thighs, shred the meat and set aside.
