A healthy chicken salad to kick-start your health and fitness goals this spring.

Ingredients

  • 400g chicken breast or thigh sliced

  • 28g feta cheese                        

  • 250 grams snow peas               

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed           

  • 2 cups baby spinach

  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped mint      

  • ¼ cup olive oil                           

  • ¼ tsp salt                                           

  • ¼ tsp pepper                               

  • ¼ tsp paprika          

Method

  • 1.

    Mix 1/2 tbsp of olive oil with the paprika, and a quarter each of the salt and pepper. Brush mixture evenly onto chicken strips. Place chicken on a preheated barbeque or chargrill pan, allowing sufficient room for each chicken slice and cook until crispy. For best results avoid pressing down on chicken pieces.

  • 2.

    In a jar or similar, combine remaining olive oil with garlic and remaining salt and pepper. Seal jar and shake vigorously. Place to the side to allow for infusion.

  • 3.

    Prepare a pot of boiling water, once boiling add in snow peas and blanch for around two minutes. Remove snow peas from water, and in a serving bowl combine with baby spinach, mint and chargrilled chicken. Pour over oil mixture and stir through. Crumble feta over the top. Serve and enjoy. 6.25 grams of carbohydrates per serve.
