Oriental Spicy Sesame Chicken Salad (with Lee Kum Kee)


Opening the fridge, you will found tens or twenties jars of different sauce. That is the kitchen of a Chinese family. Not only just in the fridge, also the cupboard too. Even a simple bottle of soy sauce, you will few bottles of different variations. When it comes to buying Chinese style sauces or condiments, Lee Kum Kee is the trusted brand to go for.

As part of Lee Kum Kee Europe‘s summer carnival BBQ campaign, I came up with a quick, simple and healthy recipe to satisfied everyone. Oriental Spicy Sesame Chicken Salad, a refreshing salad that goes brilliant with a sunny BBQ day or a lunch time meal or as a side for dinner. It can easily be turned into a vegetarian salad by replace in the meat with other colourful vegetables.

A selection of handy sauces was sent to me, they are all used very typically in Asian cooking and I always had some in my cupboards. The oriental sesame dressing is a new product from Lee Kum Kee, a pungent sesame dressing with a hint of chilli in the background. I was intrigued to using this new product and created a simple delicious recipe.
