Makes 4 servings


  • 14 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced 1 inch x 1 inch
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tbsp Thai green chilipaste
  • 1/2 napa cabbage, thinly sliced

  • 1 green onion, sliced


1. Over medium heat, fry the chicken in the canola oil, stirring frequently, for 5 min. or until cooked through. Add the green curry and brown sugar, combine well and set aside.
2. Place the cabbage, carrot and bell pepper in a large dish. Mix the mayonnaise, soy sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl and combine with the vegetables.

4. Grill the pita breads until crisp.
5. Sprinkle the salad with the green onion and serve together with the pita breads.


If you want to have extra for packed lunches, double the recipe but do not add the dressing. Store both the salad and dressing in the refrigerator in covered containers.
