Ingredients

FOR THE SALAD

  • 1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 head napa cabbage shredded
  • 1/2 head purple cabbage shredded
  • 2 bell peppers finely chopped (I used 1 orange and 1 red)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup cooked edamame
  • 1/2 cup fine chopped carrots
  • 1 English cucumber sliced
  • 4 cups cooked white rice
  • 2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • cilantro Fresh chopped
  • 1 avocado pitted and thinly sliced

FOR THE GINGER/SCALLION DRESSING

  • 1 bunch scallions thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoon ginger fresh minced/grated
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free soy sauce
  • 5 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, carefully add the chicken breasts and return water to a boil. Cover pot with an air-tight lid and remove from heat. Allow chicken breasts to poach for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until fully cooked. Once cooked, transfer chicken to a plate to cool. Once cool enough to handle, shred chicken breasts with two forks or your fingers and set aside.
  • Whisk together all ingredients for the Ginger Scallion Dressing, leaving out the scallions until the very end. Transfer approximately 1/4 of the dressing to the shredded chicken and stir to mix. Transfer remaining dressing to a jar or airtight container and set aside or store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • In a medium bowl toss together the chopped bell peppers, tomato and edamame. Set aside. Prepare the remaining ingredients- slice the cucumber, toss the steamed rice with 1-2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar, finely chop the cabbage, the carrots, then cilantro and slice the avocado.
  • Arrange 3-4 salad bowls with equal or desired amounts of rice, cabbage, vegetables, chicken and avocado. Drizzle with remaining ginger scallion dressing.
