Chicken Tikka Salad

Sharing is caring!

 Quick and easy healthy chicken tikka salad recipe – packed with flavour and super speedy to make – just 12 minutes from start to finish making it an easy midweek meal. 

If I’m on a health kick, I want to up my fruit and vegetable intake by loads and the easiest way to do this is to make delicious salads, pretty salads that include lots of vibrant colours and flavours.

Salads are so quick and easy to make, easy to take into different directions and taste great for packed lunches or picnics.

This deliciously pretty chicken tikka and mango salad can be put together in minutes. It’s fresh, tasty, zingy and super healthy. Everything I want from a salad.

We cheat by using a packet of ready to eat chicken tikka breast slices, but if you wanted to – you could marinate your own and grill them it wouldn’t be a massive task.

Shredded Romaine lettuce tossed together with succulent mango chunks, sliced perfectly pink radish, cucumber slices and avocado all tossed in a little freshly squeezed lime juice and a drizzle of sesame oil. Delicious.

I like to cut the carbs and top the salad in toasted almond slivers or sesame seeds but you can serve with crusty bread or rice if you wish.
