For the salad
Place the chicken and ⅓ of the dressing in a glass bowl. Cover with cling film and allow to marinate in the fridge for at least two hours (or overnight, if possible).
2. Mix the egg and milk in a shallow bowl.
3. Combine the flour and sesame seeds in another bowl and season well.
4. Dip each chicken strip into the milk mixture, then coat in the flour and sesame seed mixture.
5. Shallow-fry the chicken strips for about 4 minutes, until crunchy and cooked through. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
6. Arrange the mixed salad leaves, cucumber and crunchy chicken strips on a plate and drizzle with salad dressing before serving.
