Shredded Chicken with Garlic Vinegar Dressing Recipe

A very tasty way of serving chicken—and it’s very easy to prepare. The recipe here comes from the home kitchen of a Shantung family in Taiwan.

Ingredients :

    • 4 cups (1 liter) water
    • 3 boneless chicken breasts, skin removed
    • 50 g (1 cup) coarsely chopped coriander leaves
    • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, finely shredded

Sauce

    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
    • 3 teaspoons yellow mustard
    • 2 teaspoons soy sauce

Method :

    1. Bring the water to a boil in a pot. Add the chicken breasts, cover with a lid, lower the heat and simmer for 8 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the chicken poach in the hot water for 12 more minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside to drain in a colander.
    2. Place the Sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
    3. Finely shred the cooled chicken breasts and place in a large bowl. Add the chopped coriander leaves and sliced garlic and toss. Then add the Sauce and toss again until the chicken is well coated.
    4. Arrange the shredded lettuce on a platter and place the shredded chicken on top.
