2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, sliced in thick strips
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 bag salad leaves torn in bite size pieces
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
3 ounces mixed seeds and/or nuts (toasted hazel nuts are great!)
Place half of the onion and all of the parsley, thyme, Zach’s Caribbean Sauce (or Zombie Sauce), lime juice, white wine vinegar and curry powder in a blender.
Blend until smooth
Pour the mixture into a bowl
Toss the chicken in the mixture until it’s coated
Heat a frying pan until it’s hot
