Fresh Fennel and Chicken Salad

Fresh Fennel and Chicken Salad
Serves 1

I was on my own at home for lunch the other day - a very rare occurrence, I can tell you! I wanted a fresh salad, but I also wanted plenty of protein to keep me going through the afternoon. I let my creativity take over my fridge and voilà, this delicious salad was born!

1/2 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
5 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small red capsicum/bell pepper, sliced
1/2 - 3/4 cup shredded poached chicken
1/4 cup Italian parsley
1 egg
Reduced Balsamic dressing

Assemble the first 5 ingredients on the plate. Drizzle with Balsamic dressing (or any other dressing). Fry or poach an egg, keeping the yolk beautifully runny. When it's ready, place on top of the salad.

Bon appétit!


  1. I'm intrigued by "poached chicken." Did you cook it in water?

    1. Hi Mum, yes you can poach a whole chicken, or chicken breast(s). The meat is lovely and moist and delicate.

  2. Yummmm! Glad you had such a lovely lunch
