The longest named recipe in the book but dead easy to make and looks amazing too!!

2 hearts of romaine lettuce (about 400 g total/unprepared weight)

650 g skinless, boneless chicken thighs

1 tablespoon sunflower oil

40 g roasted salted peanuts

225 g baby corn cobs

1 red pepper, deseeded and quartered

1 red onion, halved

3-4 cloves garlic, peeled

1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

120 g satay stir-fry sauce (see Chef’s Corner)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander (optional)

2. Dice chicken into 2-cm pieces on Cutting Board using Santoku Knife. Heat sunflower oil in Executive Stir-Fry Skillet over medium-high heat 1–2 minutes or until oil is hot. Add chicken and spread to form a single layer in base of Skillet using Bamboo Spatula; cook, without stirring, 4–5 minutes or until browned on one side. Stir chicken; cook an additional 2–3 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked, stirring occasionally.

3. Meanwhile, coarsely chop peanuts on Large Grooved Cutting Board using Food Chopper; set aside. Cut baby corn in half lengthways. Cut red pepper and onion into 1-cm strips. Slice garlic using Garlic Slicer.

Cook’s Tip: There are several different brands of satay stir-fry sauces and they can usually be found in the ‘world cooking’ aisle of major supermarkets. Satay stir-fry sauces contain a blend of peanuts, coconut milk, spices and red chillies that give the Thai influence to this stir-fry salad.

Skinless, boneless turkey breast fillets can be substituted for the chicken thighs, if desired.

If fresh baby corn cobs are unavailable, substitute with 1 can (410 g) baby corn cobs in water, drained.
