SALAD WITH CHICKEN AND ZUCCHINI

 

  • Cooking Time: 7 min
  • Servings: 2
  • Preparation Time: 5 min

Ingredients

  • For the Salad:
  • Some mixed greens (the lighter leaves like e.g. Lollo Rosso, Lollo Biondo, Oak Leaves even fresh spinach or Rucola etc.. just mix e.g. your three favourites)
  • One small Zucchini
  • 10 pieces of Chicken Filés (the small juicy bits, don´t even have to be marinated just seasoned)
  • Nice seasoning spice for the Chicken: (I used Webers Smoky Mesquite Seasoning that I just got in Chicago next to the Webers Restaurant, but you can use your favourite)
  • A handful of pine nuts
  • Some freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • For the Dressing:
  • ca 3 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • ca 4 to 5 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Dijon Mustard (even white wine Mustard or your favourite strong mustard is good too)
  • 1 Tsp Horseradish Paste (e.g. Cream Horseradish or Table Horseradish. That is something that is very popular in Germany) (if you don´t know it or find it you can also skip it.. it gives a distingtive spicy taste and similes a salad vinaigrette I got in Paris France)

Directions

  • Rinse the Lettuce in cold water and drain
  • Make the dressing. Taste and add some oil if it´s too sour, some more mustard and horseradish if it needs more kick to it and like I wrote if you dont know or like the horseradish you can also skip it and the vinaigrette tastes great that way too.
  • Put a fryingpan on the stove and heat.
  • When warm add the pine nuts to the pan and toast golden, not for too long. When they smell heavenly they are ready.
  • Set aside on a small dish.
  • Add some olive or sunflower oil to the pan
  • Fry the Zucchini that has been cut in thin slices.
  • When golden on both sides, put on a plate that has a paper towel on it to absorb eccess oil from Zucchini.
  • Then finally season the Chicken and fry on both sides.
  • Note do not fry for too long as they can get dry if that happens.
  • Now Put the Salad together:
  • Place a bunch of salad on each plate
  • sprinkle dressing on top and combine
  • sprinkle pine nuts evenly on each plate
  • Add 5 chicken pieces ontop on each plate
  • Sprinkle freshly grated parmesan cheese on each plate
  • Add freshly ground black pepper if desired
  • Serve with or without some bread and
  • Enjoy!
