Pull That Chicken; Pull It Real Good!

It's another chicken dish, but I promise you that it is completely unique and that it will leave you satisfied and wanting more!
It's low calorie, low fat and full of flavour! Seriously savory and sweet - yum! I'm quite proud of myself on the marrying of flavours in this one!
Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Kath's Sweet, Savory Pulled Chicken Salad
(making for two)
8 oz. chicken (or about 6 chicken fillets)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar (preferably with the Mother still in)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground ginger

drizzle of sesame oil

In average-sized bowl, combine apple cider, applesauce, cinnamon, brown sugar, cumin, garlic powder and ground ginger. Should form a brown, "gritty" looking paste. Coat chicken in paste, so that it is thoroughly covered.

Heat oil over medium heat on stove top. Place chicken on oil, brown for five minutes and then flip over. Reduce heat to simmer and cover, simmering for 10 minutes; watch chicken closely as brown sugar caramelizes quickly and sticks.While chicken is simmering, you have time to make the salad dressing!

Cucumber Lemon Mint Salad Dressing
1/4 of medium cucumber, grated
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. lemon zest
5 tbsp. gluten & dairy free mayonnaise
several chopped mint leaves

Whisk all ingredients together in bowl. Set in frig until ready to dress salad.

Once timer rings for chicken, set chicken on plate or board for shredding. Chicken should easily pull apart when using two forks.
Dress salad.
Place pulled chicken  on dressed salad and eat!
