Slash the flesh of the chicken several times and rub the curry paste into each cut. Cover and let chill overnight. Cook in a heavy-bottom pan over medium heat or on a grill pan for 5-6 minutes, turning once or twice, until cooked through. Keep warm.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or large skillet and stir-fry the leaves, bok choy, and cabbage until just wilted. Add the remaining oil, shallots, and garlic, and stir-fry until just tender but not browned. Add the vinegar, chili sauce, and soy sauce. Remove from the heat.

Arrange the leaves on 4 serving plates. Slice the chicken, arrange on the salad greens, and drizzle the hot dressing over. Serve immediately.
