I found this from the net. I haven't tried this recipe yet. This is more like an appetizer.

Great salad. I loved the asian flavors of the chicken in the sauce against the cool cucumber ribbons. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs in place of breasts, just because I prefer them better. I garnished with some sesame seeds in addition to the green onions. Makes for a nice light lunch. I may add some ginger next time, but it is good just the way it is. Thanx!
