GI diet recipes #3: 20 minute chicken salad

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Douse a chicken breast fillet in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic & a pinch of cumin & black pepper (don’t let it rest, otherwise it will start to cook in the lemon juice). Chargrill.While it’s cooking, make 3 salads. 

Salad 1
Sliced tomatoes, chopped mint, balsamic syrup.

Salad 2
‘Bistro salad’ out of a bag + some cucumber, peeled and sliced on a mandolin. Dress as you like – this one’s got honey, mustard, garlic, balsamic vinegar and olive oil on it.

Salad 3
Chopped celery, courgette, red pepper, apple (peel on) & fennel. Dress it with a splash of lemon juice, then stir in a mixture of yoghurt, extra light Hellmans and ½ tsp of horseradish sauce. Add about a tbsp of Holland & Barrett salad sprinkle.

There’s a very high GI wholemeal roll on the side, but what the hell. 

And yes, all done in 20 minutes if you move fast.
