    Certainly...
    Szechuan leftover chicken salad
    1 cucumber
    1 cooked chicken breast
    1 tsp szechuan peppercorn or ground coriander, optional
    1 tbs peanut butter
    1 tbs black rice vinegar
    2 tsp soy sauce
    2 tsp granulated sugar
    2 tsp sesame oil
    1 tbs hot chili oil, or to taste
    1 tbs toasted sesame seeds
    Peel and cut the cucumber into strips about 1 1/2-inches long and the thickness of a pencil. Sprinkle the cucumber with salt and drain in a colander for 15 minutes. Lay the cucumber on a serving plate.
    Cut the chicken breast into thin strips of the same size and thickness. Arrange on top of the cucumber. Sprinkle with the Szechuan peppercorn or ground coriander if using.
    In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, black rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, and hot chili oil.
    Pour the sauce over the chicken. Top with the toasted sesame seeds.

    Hope your family likes this!
