Colourful Chicken Salad

Posted on | November 30, 2009 | 5 Comments

I have called this colourful chicken salad as I try to pack in as many coloured vegetables as I can – the plate looks gorgeous when I’m finished.  I always cook a little extra chicken & sweet potato so I can have a lazy dinner the next night by already having it prepared.


Colourful Chicken Salad

Colourful Chicken Salad

  • 120 g chicken tenderloin
  • 1 sweet potato (cut into pieces & wrap in foil)
  • 1 cup lettuce
  • 1/2 cup capsicum (red, yellow, green)
  • Grape tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon psyllium husk
  • 1/2 teaspoon flaxseeds
  • You can add any other colourful vegetable you like


  • 1/4 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice

How to Prepare:

Heat oven to 180 degress & place sweet potato in for 30 mins or until tender.  Place chicken in a tray and also put in oven (note that thin tenderloins only take about 7 mins to cook)  While that is cooking – prepare all other salad ingredients on the plate sprinkled with psyllium & flaxseeds.  Combine all dressing ingredients in a cup and mix well.  Add chicken and only 1/2 cup of cooked sweet potato and cover with dressing.

This delicious meal is easy & quick to prepare.  It contains approximately 200 calories, is protein dominant, Low GI, Low Fat, Low Sugar and packed full of fibre, vitamins and minerals.

    If you are in Singapore you can buy flaxseed and psyllium husk from Cold Storage in the health food / organic aisle. In most grocery stores it will be in the same area. Flaxseed just look like brown seeds and the husks look almost like finely grated coconut. Do let me know that you’ve found them!

    Thank you, I haven’t gotten the chance to go look for them yet and was too excited to try the salad so I just used sunflower and pumkin seeds instead for now. I really loved the salad so fresh and the sauce is delicious! Thank you for sharing, I really enjoy your website! Going to try the Chicken stir-fry soon!
