Sweet Sesame and Lime Bokchoy Salad with Shredded Lemon Chicken


Sweet Sesame and Lime Bokchoy Salad with Shredded Lemon Chicken
Original Recipe by Shelley Kamil

This is such a delicious and light dinner. The best part is, it can be pre prepared. Makes it an easy option when you just want to collapse on the couch after putting the kids to bed. Or better still, want to serve it at a dinner party without wanting to look like a headless chook scurrying around the kitchen. I’m all about delicious dinners that are deceivingly easy xx
