Chicken and green papaya salad with caramelised coconut and lime
This salad - inspired by one from Longrain - is our go-to dish when cooking for a girls' night in. Not that it's particularly ladylike - what with its big, bold flavours and textures and all - but it's a perfect thing to eat with one hand, leaving the other free the more firmly to grip a wine glass and, particularly if eaten without carbs, is a light, low fat bowlful of health and good times. The salad combines crisp, julienned green papaya, fresh coconut, Thai herbs and sous-vide chicken breast but it's the dressing that makes it really special - shredded coconut caramelised with brown sugar, finished with fish sauce and fresh lime juice. To serve, pour off liquid from sous-vide chicken and shred. Toss with the salad and dressing, sprinkle with peanuts (separate container) and serve.

If you're keeping this a Thinner Dinner, serve on its own or with shirataki noodles; if not, some prawn crackers on the side would be nice. You could also toss the salad through some rice vermicelli or glass noodles.
