Recipe | Japanese-style chicken and avocado salad

Chicken and avocado is a classic and criminally boring combination. In a sandwich, with enough mayonnaise and lemon juice, it is just about acceptable when other options are wanting. But other than that it’s a marriage of a not particularly flavoursome fruit with yesterday’s chicken. Both ingredients need something more than bread to make them really sing, and that’s just what this recipe does.

Serves 1
1/2 tsp wasabi powder
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp rice vinegar
Squeeze of lime
A few drops of sesame oil
1 tbsp groundnut oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1 chilli, sliced
1 avocado
Leftover roast chicken
Salad leaves


– Mix together the wasabi powder, mirin, rice vinegar, lime juice, sesame oil, groundnut oil and soy sauce, along with a pinch of salt. Add the chopped chilli.

– Pick apart the leftover chicken and toss through salad leaves. Add scoops of avocado and dress. Serve immediately. Quick lunch eh?
