  • 3 tsp of fresh grated ginger
  • Carrot (according to your preference)
  • 3 tbsp of peanut oil
  • 2 tbsp of rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of brown sugar
  • Fresh or dried hot pepper (red pepper paste)
  • 5 fresh coriander (or mint) leaves
  • 700 g of chicken breast
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 fresh lemon grass (or frozen and grated)
  • 1/2 Chinese cabbage or iceberg lettuce
  • 6 small green onions
  • Unsalted peanuts (a handful)


Step 1: Cut the chicken into small pieces and marinate it for at least 4 hours in the marinade.

Step 2: The marinade

Step 3: Mix the minced garlic with grated ginger and chopped lemon grass and add at least 5 tablespoons of soy sauce.

Step 4: Take a salad bowl and mix the chicken with the marinade (if the chicken is not soaked enough, add soy sauce, be careful if it is salty…).

Step 5: Cover the salad bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours.

Step 6: Once the chicken is well marinated, brown it over high heat in a pan with a little oil. It should be evenly browned. Set it aside.

Step 8: For the salad dressing, mix the peanut oil, rice vinegar, and soy sauce (the quantities are indicative, it is better to taste it as you prepare it…). Add the juice of the lime and the zest of half a lemon. Finally, add the brown sugar and a little hot pepper.

Step 9: Mix the chicken with all the ingredients, add the dressing, sprinkle with coriander leaves and crushed peanuts.
