Delicious Colourful Low Syn Chopped Chicken Salad - a perfect salad bowl to enjoy all year round.
Chopped salads are one of my favourite easy meals, you can literally add anything you like to them, and vary it easily by sticking to the usual template of a few different veggies, some sort of protein and then a bit of sweetness with a fruit of choice,
So for this yummy Chopped Chicken Salad - I got for of course some chicken thighs for my protein source, seasoned with a yummy blend of paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder, you can also go for a pinch of cayenne if you like some heat and then pan-fried in a little cooking oil spray
Paired up with carrot, peppers, lettuce, and baby cucumbers for some crunch and then, of course, some crisp apple slices for a natural sweetness.
I also like to make my own dressings, a healthy homemade dressing doesn’t have to be high in syns and poppyseed dressing is one I make regularly, as it's just perfect for salads like this. I use a little bit of yoghurt, with some lemon juice, maple syrup to tone down the sourness of the yoghurt and then garlic, onion powder and lastly some poppyseeds. It's a dressing you will want to make again and again it's so good.
You can totally drizzle this all over your salad with no guilt whatsoever - yum!!
