Spicy Sticky Chicken Salad

Spicy Sticky Chicken Salad is a great dinner and it can be left in the fridge over night to marinate or made just before cooking. It’s only 6 ingredients plus salad to create the whole dish.

I am loving the mix of garlic and ginger in my dishes at the moment and this Spicy Sticky Chicken Salad recipe uses it very well if I say so myself. Finely chop the garlic and ginger along with the chilli, add it to a bowl with chicken breast with soy sauce and honey. It gives a great salty, sweet and spicy taste. If you have a food processor then you can make a smooth paste to use or if you don’t finely chopping it also works too.

The trio of great tastes. Garlic, ginger and chilli. These epic range of flavours make this dish one of my favourites. If you want to add even more eat use hotter chillies.

Adding the chicken to a crisp green salad with avocado and sundried tomatoes combined the tastes so well and made this a great meal for the family and with a bit left over, perfect for my work lunch box.

This is a great fresh meal to make. It’s also wonderful because you can get most of the chicken prep done earlier in the day or even the day before. Mix together and pop it in the fridge until ready.
