  • 1/2 lb (250g) cooked chicken breast, cooled and shredded
Dressing:
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsps ginger paste
  • 2 Tbsps sesame paste
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsps apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsps granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsps chicken broth
  • 2 Tsps soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Sichuan peppers + extra
  • 1/2 tsp black sesame seeds
  • Place sliced cucumbers in a colander, sprinkle and toss with salt, then set aside for about 20 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients (except sesame seeds) until combined. In another bowl, toss shredded chicken with dressing, one tablespoon at a time, until just coated.
  • Drain cucumbers and gently squeeze the slices to remove excess moisture. On a small platter or plate, arrange the cucumber slices to make a bed for the chicken. Cover with chicken, pour remaining dress over and garnish with julienned carrots, black sesame seeds and extra Sichuan peppers.
