If using uncooked chicken, roast the breasts until cooked, cool and
Boil the eggs for 6 mins 30 secs for a soft boiled egg.
To make the sauce add all the sauce ingredients to a pan and turn on a

occasionally once everything is incorporated.
To assemble the salad, arrange each pile of ingredients all around the
large plate or bowl, garnish with the sliced chilli and drizzle over the
sauce and serve.
