Cajun Chicken Salad

Serves two. 290 calories per serving.

1/2 cup corn
3 cups shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes cut in cubes
1 cup chopped cucumber
2 teaspoon cooking oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
220gm skinless boneless chicken breast
1 chicken bouillon (low sodium)
3/4 cup hot water
Black pepper
Cajun spice


– Season chicken with salt, black pepper, and Cajun spice.
– In a hot pan, add oil and when hot add the chicken and cook for 2 minutes on both sides. Remove from pan and cover tightly for three minutes (this will allow the chicken to cook from the inside and stay tender). Cut the chicken in cubes.
– In a small pan, add 3/4 cup water and chicken bouillon, when it comes to a boil, add the chicken and let it cook for four minutes. Remove the chicken and discard what’s left from the water.
– Cut the vegetables and add to the salad bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, add olive oil, add the chicken, and toss everything.
– Can be served cold.
