Prepare the celery leaves and thinly sliced ginger. (No need to peel the ginger skin.)
Add the salt, chicken breast, celery leaves and ginger in the pot, and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and cool down them in the pot.
Mix the ingredients for the sesame dressing. Stir well to avoid clumps. (Other types of dressings are also fine, so use your favorite one if you like.)
Slice the chicken diagonally into bite size strips. Serve on a plate.
I made a basil and chicken sandwich with this boiled chicken breast. Check it if you like. Recipe ID: 808670.
Story Behind this Recipe
I don't like the smell from chicken so I added celery, which is my favorite, to give nice aroma. I tried to find a proper boiling method for the chicken breast to keep it moist, and I came up with this recipe.
Cook the chicken with residual heat. The water might get cold before the chicken is thoroughly cooked in winter, so adjust the cooking time or try to keep the pot warm. Be careful not to overcook in summer because hot water doesn't cool down easily!
