My Favourite Chicken Salad

Hi everyone,
I've been trying to eat a little healthier recently and this yummy salad has been one of my go to recipes, so I thought I'd share it with you.
- 2 Teaspoons of Olive Oil
- 2 Teaspoons of Balsamic Vinegar
- 1/2 Teaspoon Dried Mixed Herbs
- Half a Grated Garlic Clove
- Salt and Pepper
- 2 Handfuls of Shredded Iceberg Lettuce
- Chunk of Cucumber, diced
- Half a Red Onion, diced
- 1/4 Red Pepper, diced
- Half an Avocado, diced
- Handful of Tinned Sweetcorn
- Small Carrot, shaved with a peeler
- Sprig of Basil Leaves
- 1 Tomato, diced
- 5(ish) Black Olives, halved
- Large Raw Chicken Breast
- Teaspoon Dried Mixed Herbs
- Salt and Pepper
- Teaspoon of Olive Oil
- Coat the chicken in the herbs, salt, pepper and herbs, then pan fried in a non stick frying pan. Let the chicken get nice and golden on the side touching the pan before turning.
- Cook for around 15 minutes, until cooked through.
- Put the chicken on a plate to rest, while you make the rest of the salad.
- Start by making your dressing, I like to make it in the bowl that I'm going to eat the salad from.
- Mix all the the ingredients together and taste it to make sure it's seasoned enough.
- Place all your vegetables in the bowl with the dressing and toss it all together to coat everything with the dressing. Add a little seasoning now to make sure it's really tasty.
- Then slice the chicken, place on top of the salad and serve!
Do you have a favourite salad recipe?
Thanks for reading,

  1. That salad looks so good! I've never been the type to add corn to my salad but it makes so much since since there's chicken in it! Thanks for the recipe and now..this spark of appetite.
