6) Then add the rest of the peppercorn, ginger, garlic, sugar, and cilantro into the blender. Process until smooth.

7) Add cucumber pieces into a bowl, then top with the diced chicken. Pour on the sauce and garnish with additional cilantro if wanted.

8) Serve with a glass of Maddalena Muscat Canelli to bring out the spiciness of the peppercorns and the sweetness of the natural vinegar.
