Cajun Chicken Salad

image

AΒ simple and tasty salad – perfect for any time of the day!

For this salad I used shop bought Cajun chicken breast strips. I like to make things easy but keep it clean and healthy. These were fresh and the ingredients were minimal so I know there isn’t much added other than breadcrumbs. I always check that the packet says chicken breast otherwise you can get processed chicken inside the breadcrumbs and that defeats the objective of eating clean.

Ingredients

  • Cajun chicken breast strips
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Grated carrot
  • Steamed green beans and peas
  • Fresh diced mango
  • Toasted walnuts and pine nuts
  • A tablespoon of coleslaw
  • Lemon rapeseed oil – 1 Tbsp

Make your Salad

  1. Cook the chicken according to the instructions on the packet
  2. Steam the green beans for 10-15 mins adding the peas for the last 5 minutes
  3. Toast the walnuts and pine nuts in a pan for 2-3 mins (keeping an eye on them – they burn really quickly)
  4. Grate some carrot
  5. Pop the lettuce leaves, tomato and grated carrot on a plate
  6. Add the diced mango
  7. Add the steamed green beans and peas
  8. Sprinkle the toasted walnuts and pine nuts
  9. Pop the chicken on the top
  10. Add the coleslaw
  11. Drizzle the lemon rapeseed oil over the top

Enjoy your healthy and nutritious salad!
