Warm Chicken Chickpea Salad

September 3, 2012

Always a Winner

I made this salad after receiving some unwanted news.  I did not want to be sad for too long because the only thing that  being sad achieves is making you sadder.  In my eyes its better to be sad and productive than to just be sad.  I realised that winners only become losers when they give up and that is something I never do.  My healthy salad is nutritious and filling, real good food to give you the energy to pick yourself back up and win.  Stop beating yourself and cook good food to have the energy to beat others. It’s the Birdspeed

way ;).

This recipe was inspired by Asda Magazine (London: Publicis Blueprint Ltd, August 2012).

1 small pack of raw chicken fillets, 3 tsps paprika, 2 tsps low soy sauce, 1/4 chopped and sliced red onion, 1 beef tomato, 2 tbsps olive oil, 4 tsps balsamic vinegar, 4 spring onions, 1 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley, 1 x 300g can chickpeas, 2 handfuls of kale, salt and pepper.
