I was craving spicy chicken the other day but I also wanted something light to go with that.
So I found some iceberg lettuce in the fridge, couple of chillies and chicken breasts.
I was way too tired to cook so I kind of improvised and here’s what happened – a fiery grilled chicken & walnut salad.
Just add some olive oil, fresh lemon juice and a pinch of salt for the perfect spicy chicken salad.
Make sure you use a proper griddle pan though.
I made the whole kitchen covered in thick smoke. Ooops!:-)
But that’s all because of the pan, of course. 🙂
So here’s what you need for this quick and easy salad.
For the dressing:
2tbsp lemon juice
50ml olive oil
In a heated griddle pan, place the chicken breasts and cook for about 10-15 minutes on each side or until ready.
Leave them to cool down.
Meanwhile, prepare the dressing by combining all the ingredients together.
In a salad bowl, place the iceberg lettuce and add the chillies and walnuts.
Cut the chicken breasts and add them to the salad.
Sprinkle with the parsley.
Pour over the dressing and mix thoroughly.
Serve with extra chili for decoration.
Tip: Try glazing the chicken breasts with some pure honey while cooking them.
The honey chicken goes super well with the chillies!:-)
