How to make it
- Combine chicken and broth in a saucepan.
- Bring to a boil then cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 12 minutes.
- Transfer the chicken to a cutting board to cool. Shred or dice into bite-size pieces. (Broth can be refrigerated for another use - it will be more strongly flavoured than your standard chicken broth).
- While chicken is poaching, whisk together vinegar, tamari, 2 tsp of the sesame oil and almond butter.
- Heat the remaining oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic.
- Cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in slivered peas and edamame, cook until bright green, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Pour sauteed mixture into a large bowl, add chicken and almonds.
- Top with dressing and toss well to combine.
