2 chicken breasts (or turkey)
Some salady things (e.g. crispy lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, radish, spring onions and carrots)


Gomadare dressing –
2 tbsp chicken stock (you can use the water leftover from your cooked chicken)
2 tbsp white sesame paste (or tahini)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sugar
½ tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp ground toasted white sesame
