Italian Inspired Chicken Salad

PhotoGrid_1404572300603

I love all things Italian, including the men, I actually think I may have fallen more for the ‘Italian Men’ and then the food but that’s another story! But back to point, I just love a good salad even before I began my new eating plan but please don’t serve me two pieces of browning lettuce leaves and a carrot stick and a few dry tomatoes. Oh no!! But I guess before a salad to me would have been loaded with full fat calorific dressings and most likely very little salad which is why I have come with this little Gem, as like you, I still need my dressings and my cheese which is the absolute beauty of this, ‘My Italian Inspired Chicken Salad‘ using leftovers and fabulous seasonal vegetables! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

To Serve 1 person.

Preparation time 10 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 left over Chicken breast.
  • 2 handfuls of Rocket lettuce.
  • 2 small sliced vine tomatoes.
  • 1/4 Red Bell pepper finely diced.
  • 1/4 of a small red onion finely sliced.
  • A medium sized piece of Cucumber finely sliced and halved.
  • 30g of Parmesan cheese.

Dressing

  1. 1 tbsp of Extra light mayonnaise.
  2. 1 tsp of fat free fromage frais
  3. 1/4 tsp of any good sweet chilli sauce.

  5. 1/4 tsp of salt and some freshly ground black pepper to season.
  6. 1 tsp of cold water to thin the dressing.

ENJOY!!
