The star of this Asian-style salad is the irresistibly savory-sweet dressing (made with sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, and vinegar) that brings together crisp vegetables and juicy orange—all topped with a duo of sautéed shishito peppers and togarashi-seasoned chicken.

Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat.
