187 g (61⁄2 oz) caster (superfine) sugar

162 g (53⁄4 oz) garlic cloves, peeled

300 ml (101⁄2 fl oz) Chinkiang black vinegar

150 ml (5 fl oz) light soy sauce

500 g (1 lb 2 oz) Lao Gan Ma chilli oil

1⁄2 cucumber, deseeded and cut into thin strips

100 g (31⁄2 oz) bean sprouts, trimmed

50 g (13⁄4 oz) toasted peanuts, roughly chopped

100 g (31⁄2 oz) coriander (cilantro) leaves

flaky salt, to taste

3 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds  

1 teaspoon roasted ground sichuan pepper 

1 fresh lime, cut into cheeks

 

To make the dressing, blend the white sesame seeds, sugar, garlic and black vinegar. Transfer to a large bowl. Blend the rest of the ingredients, then combine all of the ingredients, mixing well. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

To prepare the chicken, place all the ingredients in a pot. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and let the chicken cool in the liquid.

Remove the cooked chicken from the liquid. Pull all meat from the chicken, then shred the meat. Stir the dressing to emulsify.

To make the salad, in a large serving bowl add the chicken, cucumber, bean sprouts, peanuts, coriander leaves, salt, sesame seeds and sichuan pepper.

Pour over the dressing. Toss to mix well and serve in a large bowl with the lime cheeks.
