While trying to decide what to have for dinner tonight that met all the necessary requirements for a week-night dinner (1. tastes delicious 2. can be made from ingredients already in my fridge 3. is easy to make 4. tastes delicious 5. is healthy), I asked my friend for advice. She told me to make spicy chicken salad and eat on whole wheat toast. What? How? I’ll tell you how.
Here’s what you need:
-1 slice of whole wheat brea (or any kind you want)
-spinach (or any kind of lettuce you want)
-2 spoonfuls Greek yogurt (more or less depending on how much you’re making)
-Cholula hot sauce
-handful of cherry tomatoes
-salt and pepper to taste
-chicken (I used pre-cooked grilled chicken from Trader Joe’s, big time saver and quite tasty.)
Step 1: Dice the onion, cilantro, tomatoes and chicken and throw into a bowl.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt and Cholula. Add to your preferences – more or less of either to make it more or less spicy. I went for spicy. Didn’t regret it.
Step 3: Combine the chicken and Greek yogurt mixtures in one bowl. Squeeze the lime on top, salt and pepper and mix.
Step 4: Meanwhile, toast your bread. Cut up 1/4 of an avocado and spread it on the toast like butta. Dash some pepper on that baby.
Step 5: Add a thin layer of spinach (or whatever lettuce your heart desires) and then dump the chicken on. Voila.
It’s like rich, creamy spicy chicken goodness. I made some roasted garlic eggplant for on the side, went perfectly. Some sweet potato or real fries would also be delicious. Enjoy!
