Wasabi Tahini Chicken Salad
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 20 mins
  • Servings: 3-4
  • Preparation Time: 15 mins
  • 2 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound total)
  • 2 tbsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, plus more lime wedges, for serving (3 to 4 limes)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2-1 tbsp wasabi paste (up to you)
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 8 to 10 celery ribs, plus 1/2 cup celery leaves
  • Sesame seeds, for serving
DIRECTIONS
  1. In a medium pot, cover chicken breasts with about 2 inches of water, and season with 2 tablespoons kosher salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then simmer on low until the chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pot and let cool
  2. While the chicken cools, make the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together lime juice, tahini, wasabi paste, garlic and 1/4 cup water until smooth. Cut celery into fine, little pieces and place in a bowl separate from the dressing
  3. Using two forks or hands, shred the chicken into bite-size pieces and transfer to the bowl with the celery
  4. Pour dressing over the chicken and celery and toss to coat. Top with celery leaves and sesame seeds, and serve with lime wedges. Can eat hot or chill in the fridge and serve cold
  5. Enjoy!
