Japanese Chicken Salad - Ban Ban Ji 棒棒雞

We like to buy roasted chicken from Costco.  We always have left over chicken breasts.  I usually use it to make chicken salad.  This is the recipe I saw from a Japanese cooking show. This is a little different than the oriental chicken salad I made but it is very good.


1 Cooked chicken breasts (see note), sliced
1 Cucumber
1 Tomatoes

Mixed sauce: (These are just estimate, adjust sauce to your prefer taste)
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame paste
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 green onion
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp minced ginger
Some hot sauce

  1. Shred or cut cucumber into thin slices.
  2. Cut tomatoes in half first then thin slice it.  Place around the plate.
  3. Put shredded cucumber in the middle.
  4. Place sliced chicken breasts on top.
  5. Pour sauce on top of chicken and serve.
Note:  If you don't have left over cooked chicken breasts, here is the original recipe from the show on how to prepare in advance:

Place 2 pieces of raw chicken breasts in cold water.
Add a few of pepper corn.
Boil for 20 minutes in medium heat
Let cool off, slice chicken breasts.
