Seamus Mullen is one of the most outspoken voices in favor of healthy food within the celebrity chef world. His latest book, Real Food Heals, is a follow-up to 2012’s Hero Food, which seeks to teach home cooks how to make the most nutritionally dense food while leaving out the stuff that slows you down. Mullen continues to chronicle his journey to healthful living through delicious food. This tamari-glazed chicken salad is exactly what you want for lunch.

Southeast Asian flavors run through this nice contrast of hot chicken over cold salad. They’re bound together by the marinade, which is boiled after seasoning the chicken so it can be turned into the salad dressing. I like chicken legs because of the different textures of the thigh and drumstick, but I also like deboning them so they cook more evenly.
