Help get NZ cooking: Light chicken salad
NEED TO KNOW
|Type of dish||Salad|
|Cooking time||<30 min|
|Serves/makes||2 - 4|
This is a quick, easy and super healthy salad, which uses Quinoa (pronounced Keen-wa) which can be found in the bulk bins at good supermarkets. It's a super grain.
It makes a great light meal, or a hearty lunch.
|Low fat Cottage Cheese|
|Carrots (any unused veggies left over at the end of the week work great too)|
|1. Butterfly the chicken breast and spread low fat cottage cheese in the middle. Add the sundried tomatoes and close - if baking wrap tight in tin foil and place in oven for 30-40 mins otherwise just place on the grill until juices run clear. Stand for a few minutes before slicing.
2. Cook the quinoa as you would with rice. I cook it in chicken stock to give it a bit more flavour.
3. Chop up cucumber, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and carrots (any other veggies work well too). Keep these raw, mix with the chicken into the quinoa and serve.
