Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Marinate the chicken breasts in the sweet chilli sauce and ½ cup soya sauce while you prepare the salad ingredients.

Squeeze the lemon juice over the avocado, then arrange the avocado, red onion and baby cucumbers in a large bowl or 4 smaller bowls.

Pan-fry the chicken breasts for 3 minutes on each side, or until caramelised.

Transfer to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until cooked through.

Combine the remaining soya sauce, sesame oil, garlic and honey and drizzle over the salad. Slice the chicken and place on top of the salad, then sprinkle with the sesame seeds and shredded nori. Season to taste.
