Method

1. Bring the water to the boil in a medium-sized pan. Add the chicken breasts and poach for 8-10 minutes.
2. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the dressing with the garlic, ginger, and orange juice. Mix in the Hoi Sin Stir Fry Sauce and dark soy sauce in a bowl and set aside.
3. Prepare the sugar-snap peas and gem lettuce and chill in the fridge for 5 minutes.
4. Remove the chicken from the water, drain well and place on a chopping board. With a knife and fork, shred the chicken into bite-size pieces and then let it rest and cool for 5 minutes.
5. In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the sugar-snap peas and orange hoi sin dressing. Place the gem lettuce pieces on a serving plate and spoon the dressed chicken and sugar snap on to each piece. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds to serve.
