Make-Ahead Coconut-Poached Chicken with Spring Vegetables and Cashews

[Photograph: Suzanne Lehrer]

Poaching chicken in coconut milk and chicken stock provides amazing tenderness, especially for breast meat, which is usually the quickest to toughen up. The rest of this salad is all crunch: napa cabbage, cashews, and blanched asparagus and green beans, dressed in a simple soy vinaigrette.

If you're feeling adventurous, finely mince the chicken and vegetables and leave the cabbage leaves whole to create a lettuce wrap.
