Not only will you love this healthy chicken salad, but your body will too. It’s brimming with nutrients and absolutely packed with protein, thanks to those pan fried chicken breasts and toasted almonds. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Modern Food Stories recipe without a good dose of healthy fats from a fabulous extra virgin olive oil dressing.
I originally included artichokes purely because I love them, and I think they compliment chicken beautifully. But did you know they’re one of the most antioxidant rich veggies you can eat? They’re also considered to be an anti-inflammatory food, so this recipe is great for my fellow autoimmune suffers.
I like to use the chargrilled deli artichokes because they have the best flavour, but you can use tinned if you prefer. Just makes sure you rinse them then drain well.
This recipe is great for those of you on a high protein, low carb diet, or if you’re just wanting a mid week healthy flexitarian meal. Its tasty, nutritious, and works great as a meal prep too.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
