Chinese Chicken Salad

 This is a bit time consuming, but worth the effort!  It is soooo good!

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 box of chicken broth
1 1/2-2 tsp horseradish
1 tsp. hot mustard powder
2 TBSP Sesame Oil
2 TBSP sesame seeds, toasted
1/3 to 1 head (depending on the size of yours) iceberg lettuce, shredded
1/2 cup roasted almonds, finely chopped,( I roast mine with a little coconut oil in a skillet, stove top)


Boil the chicken breast in broth until the chicken is done, about 15-20 minutes.  Remove the chicken from the broth and set aside. Reduce your broth down to 1/3 cup over med-high heat (you can just let it boil away if you'd like).   While that is happening, shred your chicken into small bite size pieces and set aside.  When your broth has reached 1/3 cup remove from heat and  add the horseradish, hot mustard powder, sesame oil, and sesame seeds, mixing well.  Allow it to cool slightly, and just before serving combine the lettuce, chicken, dressing and nuts.  I find it usually needs a little shake of sea salt to finish it off. ,mix, serve and enjoy!  Delicious alternative to traditional  Chinese Chicken Salad.
