  • 300 g chicken breast fillets
  • 10 g ginger (thinly sliced)
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine (mirin)
  • 5 cups water (to boil the chicken)

  • 40 g yellow bell pepper (julienned)
  • 40 g green bell pepper (julienned)

  • 1 English cucumber (seeds removed, julienned)


  • 4 Tbsp walnuts (finely ground)

  • 6 Tbsp mayonnaise (I used Japanese mayonnaise)
  • 1.5 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
