Chicken Satay Salad

A fresh new salad for your summer repertoire.

This salad is great as a meal. This recipe is enough for about 4 people.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 ½ lbs. chicken fillets
  • 1 jar satay sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 bag of baby spinach or leafy greens
  • 1 box cherry tomatoes
  • 3 avocados
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 mango
  • ½ cup couscous
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • optional: ¾ cups feta cheese in oil
  • ¼ cup dry roasted nuts (like cashews, pine nuts etc.)

PREP

  1. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Cut all the vegetables and fruit into small pieces and mix together in a bowl.

COOK

  1. Cook the couscous according to the directions on the package and add the curry powder.
  2. Heat the oil on the pan, medium heat.
  3. Add the chicken to the pan and cook on both sides.
  4. Pour the satay sauce over the chicken and let it cook for a few minutes, until the sauce sticks to the chicken and is not very runny anymore.
  5. Roast the nuts on a pan – be careful not to leave them unattended because they can easily burn!

  2. Add the couscous.
