Chicken Southeast Asian Fruit Salad

Chicken Fruit SaladTo make this salad poach 1 chicken breast or buy a rotisserie chicken already cooked and chop 1 breast into bite size pieces.
Slice an orange into segments, slice a green apple into chunks, cut red or green grapes in half, and chop romaine lettuce.

To make the dressing start with serrano chilli peppers (1-2), remove the seeds and ribs of the pepper if you want to tone down the spiciness. I prefer the seeds left in it, but I usually add those to my portion so the kids portion doesn’t get spicy. Add cilantro 1-2 teaspoons and lime juice 2-4 Tb to the pepper in a bowl, add some sugar (start with a 1/2 teaspoon and taste until the sugar balances out the acid from the lime juice).

Once the dressing is ready add the chicken and fruit in a bowl and then add the dressing. If you are going to keep this salad for while, gather all of the ingredients but don’t dress until you are ready to serve it.

This makes a perfect lunch salad, that is refreshing and filling.
