Marinated chicken with cabbage and sesame salad

A recent concoction that turned out to be rather tasty. Fast and easy to make, and quite healthy! I would have added some fresh snow peas to the salad if I'd had them handy, for a bit of colour.
The chicken marinade would also be nice with firm tofu, for the vegetarians out there!

Cabbage and sesame salad ingredients:

1 smallish Chinese cabbage (wombok), finely shredded
1 carrot, grated
2 tbs sesame seeds, toasted
100g raw unsalted peanuts, crushed
1 small red chilli, very finely diced
1 tbs rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp crushed ginger
1/2 tsp sugar

Combine the cabbage, carrot, sesame seeds and chilli in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and mix together.
Pour the second bowl into the first and mix well.


Marinated chicken tenderloins ingredients:

1/4 C kecap manis
1/4 C rice wine vinegar
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
dash of fish sauce
500g chicken tenderloins

Combine all marinade ingredients except the chicken.
Pour over the chicken and leave in the fridge to marinate for at least 15 minutes.
Cook chicken on grill or bbq until just done.
