This crispy chicken salad is exactly what I would serve for a languid lunch on a warm day – it’s light, tasty and would go brilliantly with a chilled glass of white wine.
Panko breadcrumbs give the crispy chicken a lovely light texture, with a hint of flavour from the smoked paprika and celery salt. Segmenting citrus takes a little practice to be able to do well (to avoid leaving any pith attached to the fleshly segments) – be sure to use a small paring knife for greater agility. The dressing with this salad is a real winner, and goes so well with even a basic green salad. You can find ponzu in the International section of the supermarket, or in gourmet food stores.
