FOR THE CHICKEN: Heat the oil in a frying pan. Sprinkle the chicken with cumin, add to the pan and cook until the chicken is well browned and tender. Remove from the pan and cut into thick slices.

FOR THE SALAD: Peel the carrots lengthways into strips with a vegetable peeler and place in a bowl of cold water until crisp (about 30 minutes). Boil, steam or microwave the asparagus and peas until just tender, drain, refresh in iced water and drain again.

FOR THE DRESSING: Combine all ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake well.

TO SERVE: Combine the warm chicken with the vegetables, sprouts, lettuce and onion in a bowl and toss well. Drizzle with dressing just before serving.

This recipe is a good start for an interesting dish but it wasn't very 'spiced'. I would add additional fish sauce, hotter peppers, possibly some white pepper and pepper flakes - maybe even more cumin to the chicken (and I had used more than suggested.) I will make it again as it is very healthy and a nice change in flavors.
