    1. Prepare chicken by finely slicing the chicken flesh into long shreds. You should have enough to make 3 cups or 300g in weight without bones. Place in a large mixing bowl.
    2. Add shredded cabbage, bean shoots, carrot, coriander leaves and shallots.
    3. Just before serving, pour over dressing and mix well to combine. Serve on lettuce leaf cups or with crisp toast slices of grainy bread. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds
    4. To make dressing: Place all ingredients into a screw top jar and shake to mix well.

    Tip

    You can prepare it ahead and store covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Don't add the dressing until the last minute.
