Type of recipe Salads, Chicken
Type of cooking Homemade, Healthy
Total time 20 minutes
Servings 2

1 thick fillet of chicken breast cooked preferably grilled or grilled.
200 grams of fresh lettuce.
12 cherry tomatoes chopped in half.
1/2 red or yellow pepper, or both
½ cup of sliced ​​black olives.
Olive oil.
Balsamic or wine vinegar.

The first thing is to make sure to use a very clean lettuce. We are going to separate the leaves and wash them well. Apart from passing each sheet under the water jet, I prefer to dip them also in a container, where I have previously diluted a stream of vinegar in water. You leave them there for a few minutes.
Depending on the mood they have on the day of preparing this chicken salad, they can decide two things: cut the lettuce leaves into strips or leave them complete. I prefer to do the latter, but it is true that when this recipe becomes habitual in a kitchen (which is what will happen in the case of you, I am sure), it is fun to change this type of detail with each preparation.
Arrange the lettuce leaves in a salad bowl.
Add the black olives cut into casters, the pepper in strips and the halves of cherry tomatoes.
Now it's time to cut chicken breast into strips, widthwise. The interesting thing about this ingredient is that you can play with the temperature: it can be used hot, if the chicken has just been cooked, or cold, if it was prepared in advance. You can also season the chicken to taste. Then, we will reserve the pieces for a few minutes.
We return to the mix of the rest of the salad. We are going to add salt and pepper to the taste, add a good squirt of olive oil and another balsamic vinegar.
Now it's time to mix everything with two spoons or salad spoons.
The next thing is to decorate with the pieces of chicken.
To finish the dressing, add a last strand of olive oil over the chicken.
