This is very tasty! It has a nice Asian flavor to it. I used the red radish and some leftover grilled chicken, so I skipped steps 1-3. I would suggest not keeping it for 4 days in the refrigerator only because mine was cooling for 2 hours and the spinach leaves were starting to wilt. I cut the recipe in half and it made 2 large servings. Thanks for posting. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat approximately 2 inches of water in a large saucepan or stockpot. Add chicken (and add enough water to cover chicken) and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, approximately 15 minutes.
  3. Set chicken aside and allow to cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile in a large bowl, combine spinach, radish, ginger and sesame seeds.
  5. Using 2 forks, shred chicken into 2-inch strips and add to spinach mixture.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients. Pour over chicken and toss to combine.
  7. Cool to room temperature and refrigerate before serving, for best flavor, for 2-3 hours. Will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
