Chicken & Orange Salad

This salad is simply delicious. It is sweet and juicy and makes a great winter salad when you need something really refreshing – and the navel oranges are in season.

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast (no skin / bone)
  • 1 clove of garlic (minced), save 1/4 of it for the dressing
  • 1 good splash of tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • handful of sesame seeds
  • Large handful of baby spinach leaves, rocket and / or baby greens
  • 1/2 yellow capsicum, deseeded and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 stick of celery, chopped
  • 1/2 spring onion / scallion, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 whole orange, segmented
  • small handful of cashew or macadamia nuts
  • 2 small vine tomatoes, quartered
  • A drizzle of coconut / olive oil to cook the chicken

For the dressing:

  • 2 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 orange (zested and juiced)
  • 1/4 clove of garlic (minced)
  • Seasoning to taste
  • Honey to taste

This is a no oil dressing – it is fresh and light, you may or may not need the honey depending on how sweet the orange juice is. 

Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and place in a bowl to marinate, with the garlic, tamari / soy sauce, and sesame seeds.

Prepare the salad vegetables, and pour over the dressing, mix it through.

Cook the chicken thoroughly in a little oil and add to the salad, top with the nuts, season and serve.
