skinnymixer's Asian Herb Chicken Salad

This Asian Herb Chicken Salad is a delicious hot weather Thermomix recipe that is super healthy, yummy and filling. After going out to dinner the other night and trying a similar salad that was SO fresh and gorgeous - I knew I needed to recreate the dish at home. This Thermomix salad is gluten free, dairy free and lower carb. It also makes a delicious filling in rice paper rolls.

Asian Pesto

  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled
  • 1 cm ginger
  • 1 large green chilli deseeded, roughly chopped
  • 2 large bunches of fresh thai basil
  • 1 bunch of fresh mint
  • large handful of fresh coriander
  • 60 g oil of choice
  • 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce, liquid aminos, coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Apple Sauce

  • 4 apples peeled and quartered
  • 200 g water
  • 20 g coconut sugar

Salad Ingredients

  • 500 g chicken breast cubed
  • 1-2 thinly sliced shallots small brown onion
  • 250 g bean sprouts
  • 1 bunch of fresh watercress or lettuce
  • 80 g slivered almonds


  • Put garlic, ginger and chilli into mixer bowl, chop for 3 sec/speed 9/MC on.
  • Put fresh herbs into mixer bowl, chop for 5 sec/speed 9 - using spatula to help. Scrape bowl down.
  • Add remaining pesto ingredients and blend for 5 sec/speed 5/MC on. Set pesto aside, retaining 1 tbsp of pesto in the bowl.
  • Add chicken to mixer bowl, blend through pesto for 5 sec/speed 3/reverse/MC on. Place chicken on to flat steaming tray.
  • Without washing the bowl, add apple sauce ingredients to mixer bowl, blend for 10 sec/speed 6/MC on.
  • Put steaming tray in place, and steam for 17 min/steaming temp/speed 2.
  • Set apple sauce aside and without washing the bowl, put steamed chicken in bowl. Shred for 2-3 sec/speed 4/reverse. You still want your chicken quite chunky.
  • Allow apple sauce and chicken to cool for a few minutes, then in a large bowl put reserved pesto, 1/4 to 1/2 apple sauce, chicken and salad ingredients. Combine well.
  • Serve with extra soy sauce to taste.


You can omit the chicken for a vegetarian version.
Use left over apple sauce with roast pork or make the salad again 🙂 It will keep in the fridge for 4 days.
Visit your local asian grocer, you will pay roughly $1 per large bunch of fresh herbs - making this a very budget friendly meal!
