Steps

  1. Cook rice Combine rice, first measure of water and a pinch of salt in a pot and bring to the boil. Once boiling, cover with a tight-fitting lid and reduce to lowest heat to cook for 12 minutes. Turn off heat and leave to steam, still covered, for a further 8 minutes. Do not lift lid during cooking.
  2. Toast sesame seeds Heat a dry pot on medium heat. Toast sesame seeds for about 1 minute, stirring regularly, until golden. Remove from pot and set aside.
  3. Make peanut sauce Using same pot, combine all peanut sauce ingredients and bring to a simmer. Mix until smooth. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce has thickened slightly, stirring often, for about 7 minutes.
  4. Cook chicken Heat a drizzle of oil in a fry-pan on medium-high heat. Pat chicken dry and season. Cook for about 6 minutes each side (depending on thickness), or until golden and cooked through. Remove from pan and cover, to rest for a few minutes. Dice 2-3cm, then toss through any resting juices.
  5. Prep salad Thinly slice lettuce; grate carrot; cut cucumber in half lengthways and thinly slice; cut tomato into thin wedges.
