In a large bowl lightly toss all the ingredients together. Arrange in a salad bowl with sliced chicken and drizzle with dressing. 


 For the Dressing


In a mortar and pestle crush the palm sugar, and add the garlic, lime juice, fish sauce and coconut cream, season to taste with fish sauce/sugar. Add the chilli and drizzle over the salad.
