Chicken in tempura batter with radish, cress and cos

This is a very delicious salad, using a pre-packaged tempura batter - just add water. I found it at a local gourmet supermarket, but feel free to make your own
Brown your chicken first to be sure it fully cooks through. I used one sliced chicken breast per person...fry the chicken on a medium heat for a couple of minutes (before browning too much) in grapeseed oil then leave to cool on paper towels. Once cool, mix into your tempura batter and then shallow fry until you can start to see colour coming through in the batter. Rest on paper towels and slice through the first batch to test its properly cooked, and taste test! Then arrange on the salad and drizzle the dressing, yum!
For the salad (per person)
Layer 3-4 washed large cos leaves, 3-4 brocolini stems, 1 small radish finely sliced, 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds and dress with 1 tbsp Japanese mayo mixed with 1 tsp soy sauce
