Super Healthy Chicken Salad Recipe

A super tasty chicken salad that makes for a healthy summer student meal.

The ingredients below will make for two servings.

The salad should keep in the fridge for at least a day or two, so can be made ahead of time or leftovers can be saved for future meals.


To make 1 serving

  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small lemon
  • Cucumber
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper

How to make this summer chicken salad:

  1. Unless you’ve got some cooked chicken to hand, season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and bake for 180 degrees for 25 minutes or until fully cooked.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the salad: Peel, half, de-stone and cube the avocado and add to a bowl.
  3. Peel and roughly slice the onion and add to the salad.
  4. Roughly chop the tomatoes and cucumber and add those to the mix.
  5. Finally, crumble over feta and give everything a good mix.
  6. Drizzle over 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and the juice of one lemon and mix it all together.
  7. Once the chicken is cooked, allow to cool before cutting into cubes and mixing into the salad.
  8. Service!
