TV Dinners: Eat Drink Man Woman - Chicken Cucumber Salad

Have you ever seen the film Eat Drink Man Woman? It's got a great opening scene where the father, a senior chef who is losing his sense of taste, is preparing a large dinner for his daughters. In four and a half minutes you see at least seven different dishes being prepared - that's seven of the 100+ recipes used throughout the film! Every time anyone mentions this movie, I start drooling and need to have Asian food asap! To see the foodilicious opening scene for yourself, and get a recipe for a simple cucumber chicken salad,

That opening scene reminds me of Tortilla Soup - one of my FAVORITE three movies, only it's not Asian food.
