"Today we're making an Asian chickensalad; it's not a mayonnaise based chicken salad" Stacey Kendrick toldIvanhoe.

First, brush your bone in chicken breast witholive oil and add a little pepper and salt.

"If you're on a salt restricted diet youcould certainly leave the salt off if you needed to," Kendrick explained.

Leave the skin on to keep the chicken juicy;cut up red and yellow pepper and two scallions. Then toast some hearty healthyalmonds and sesame seeds.

Next make the dressing with vegetable oil,cider vinegar, low fat creamy peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, andminced garlic.

When the chicken's cooked, throw the skin awayand pull the chicken apart, then mix it with your other ingredients.

Serve the Asian Chicken Salad cold and youhave, "a great summer dish," Kendrick said.
