Prepare slaw

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, place rice vinegar, sesame oil, cilantro, and salt then whisk until combined well.

  2. To shred carrots and cucumber - using a vegetable peeler, peel your vegetables into long thin strips, stack them on top of each other and cut into thin strips, this should be about 2 inches long. 

  3. Place shredded carrots and cucumbers in the bowl with the sauce and toss - set aside in your fridge.


Prepare sauce

  1. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, sriracha, garlic and ⅛ teaspoon salt with a spoon until combined well. Set aside.


Grill or pan-fry chicken

  1. Pat dry chicken then season on both sides with salt and pepper. 

  2. Heat your grill to medium-high heat. Once hot, brush with a little bit of olive oil or coconut oil to prevent meat from sticking. If you pan fry, follow the same procedure. 

  3. Cook your chicken 3-4 minutes on both sides until meat is no longer pink on the inside.

  4. Rest meat for 10 minutes then cut into strips. 


Assemble

  1. Assemble lettuce on a platter, place a spoonful of slaw, slather a spoonful of sriracha mayo and top with the grilled chicken, then serve!
