Why I Love This Recipe

There is a restaurant in Tucson, AZ called "Cafe Pacific" that has my favourite dish of all time. It's called Southern Pacific Chicken. Unfortunately, I didn't get the recipe from them, so I had to fudge it. The flavours are about right, although I can't get the exact taste of the fried rice they serve with it.

When I make this, I don't measure anything, so this is guesswork and to your taste. I hope you enjoy it.

Ingredients You'll Need

5 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Dipping sauce
1 leek, cleaned and finely chopped (make sure to get all the dirt out of em.. it collects inside the layers
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
approx 1 ts fresh ginger, finely chopped
1/4 c peanut oil
salt (about 1/2 ts) depends on taste

Mix all ingredients into a bowl and then set aside

"Pickled" veggies

1 fresh daikon radish, peeled and cubed
1 large carrot, peeled and cubed
1 cucumber, washed and sliced
1 cup rice vinegar
1 tbsp sugar.


Mix sugar and rice vinegar together.

Pour over bowl full of veggies and let sit.

You may need more of the vinegar mixture.

Like I said, I didn't measure anything, so cook to your tastes.


Boil chicken breasts until cooked and tender, slice into managable pieces.

Serve sauce in a separate dipping bowl.

Garnish plate with pickled veggies or serve in another separate little bowl.

Serve with fried rice.
