How to make it
- Blend first 9 items in food processor.
- Add vegetable oil - slowly, in a stream -until emulsified.
- Add sesame oil, remove enough to a separate container to marinate your chicken.
- Refrigerate until ready to use.
- This dressing will keep 2 weeks in your fridge.
- Keep all salad ingredients well chilled until assembly.
- 'Butterfly' 2 large chicken breasts, place in plastic or glass bowl, cover with marinade and allow to rest 2 hours.
- When ready to cook, wipe all excess marinade off breasts and grill at medium/high heat on griddle or over charcoal or wood fire, basting with marinade as it cooks.
- Cook 4 minutes on one side, 3 on the other (depending on thickness of breasts).
- Meanwhile mix all salad ingredients together, adding JUST ENOUGH of the reserved dressing to flavor the salad (you can always add more - you can't subtract!)
- Place salad on well chilled serving plates, top with hot glazed chicken breasts, cut into strips, top with a few reserved almond slices and some fresh cilantro leaves.
- Serve immediately.
