Crunchy sesame-coated chicken strips over a salad with a tart-sweet ginger dressing.






2 chicken breasts
1/3 cup sesame seeds
1/3 cup GF corn flakes, crushed
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
2 tsp oil


  • 1/4 cup vinegar (white, apple cider, or rice)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup red pepper, minced
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated (click here to learn a new technique: How To Peel Ginger)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Mixed greens
  • Sliced almonds
  • Goat or Feta cheese, optional

Combine sesame seeds and corn flake crumbs in a shallow dish with the salt. In another shallow dish beat the egg until smooth. Dip chicken in the egg, then coat both sides with crumb mixture.

Fry chicken with oil, about 6 minutes per side until fully cooked. Set aside.

For dressing, whisk together all ingredients (or put in a lidded jar and shake to combine).

To serve, toss mixed greens with dressing and sprinkle with almonds and any cheese you’d like. Cut chicken breasts into thin strips and add to salad.
