Chinese Shredded Chicken and Cucumber Salad

Chinese Shredded Chicken and Cucumber Salad (aka 雞絲拌黃瓜絲) is a very refreshing side dish or appetizer perfect for the summer.  At my house, we make it when we have left over chicken.  You get to use up the left over chicken and eat a yummy dish!  If you’ve never had it before, I strongly suggest you try it!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
  • Shredded chicken
  • 4 medium cucumbers
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 scallions
  • 3 tsp of sesame oil
  • Salt, as desired

Instructions

1.  If you have left over chicken, go ahead and just shred it.  I had a big piece of chicken breast that I used.  If you don’t have any left over chicken, you can check out how make shredded chicken here. 2.  Remove most of the skin of the cucumber by using a peeler.  This step is actually more up to you.  Your choice on whether you want to keep the skin or remove it all.  We like the mix of skin and no skin personally.

4.  Mix shredded cucumbers with about 1 tsp of salt.  Wait 10 minutes afterwards.  The cucumber will have produced liquid, and after 10 minutes, dump out the salty liquid.
