Eat Fit Not Fat – Hot and Cold Chicken Salad

By |

This weeks post was inspired by one of Mike and my favorite dishes at a local restaurant here in Boston. It’s called the Hot and Cold Chicken Salad and it’s delicious! Mike played a key role in this weeks segment. We have recreated this meal so many times at home and it always tastes delicious. We made some slight changes to the actual version that Parish Cafe serves up, but we did our best guessing at re-creating a tasty treat. Feel free to add your own fresh and healthy additions.


Makes 2 salads

Bag of fresh Arugula salad mix ( I couldn’t find just Arugula, so I did a spinach/arugula blend

3-4 fresh carrots (peeled, cut and sliced length wise)

1 bag of fresh pea pods

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1/2 avocado, sliced length wise

1 cup white or brown rice

Drizzle of soy sauce

shaved almonds

2 chicken breasts

(marinate chicken in a plastic bag with juice of half a lemon, tbsp of olive oil, tbsp of honey and sprinkle with salt and pepper during cooking)

For Salad Dressing:

Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp of balsamic
1 tbsp of honey
Pinch salt
Whisk in olive oil to taste
