Healthy Shredded Chicken Salad

We have high 95F (35C) again today!

Last night, I had a good time with my friends. I got ambitious!!! I thought I need to try something new when I have time. Now I am thinking of signing up for a course that I wanted to take for a long time. I'm going to attend an orientation session the week after next... will see!

Today I will translate my gorgeous award-winning chicken salad recipe :) I won a prize at Pietro dressing - green (tasty soy sauce and grated onion based dressing that contains less oil and calories) contest before.

Healthy Shredded Chicken Salad

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 2-3

200g (7oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breast
* a pinch of salt
* 1 tbsp. sake
100g (3.5oz.) cabbage
40g (1.5oz.) cucumber
25g (1oz.) carrot
5 aojiso (perilla)
1 tomato
thin onion slices
toasted black sesame seeds
fat-free dressing of your choice

1. In a heat-resistant container, rub A on chicken breast. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on Medium 500 W (50-60%) for about 3 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then shred.
2. Cut cabbage, cucumber, carrot, and aojiso into thin strips, immerse them in ice water to make them crisp.
3. Slice tomato and place on a plate, put vegetable strips (2.) and shredded chicken (1.) on top, then sprinkle thin onion slices and toasted black sesame seeds.
4. Serve with fat-free dressing of your choice.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

You know what!? I just searched about the course I said I wanna take and found that it is extremely expensive compared to the other similar qualifications. Some people say that this association gathers the money for their operational costs :(
I think I need to search more before I decide...

Okay, have a good weekend ;)
