Grilled Chicken, Lettuce and Scallions: Marinate the chicken for at least 3 hours. Bring it to room temperature before grilling. Brush lettuce and scallions with olive oil and season lightly with black pepper and sea salt. Light up the charcoal or prepare the gas grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Grill and baste the chicken with additional oil until the chicken is fully cooked. Let the chicken rest for at least 2 to 3 minutes before slicing. Grill the lettuce and scallions about 6 to 7 minutes, turning once or twice until they are tender.

Salad Dressing: Whisk together the lemon juice, coriander, chili flakes and olive oil until emulsified and season with sea salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, gently toss all the salad ingredients with some salad dressing and season with salt and pepper, if necessary.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
