Great Big Chicken Salad

This is something I whip up from time to time with either roast chicken leftovers or a grilled chicken breast. Simply double, triple, etc. the amounts below depending on how many people you are feeding.


  • One grilled chicken breast sliced
  • Salad (kale, rocket, spinach, chard, etc.); enough to cover a dinner plate
  • Two tablespoons of semi sun-dried tomatoes
  • A handful of walnuts
  • Two artichoke hearts
  • A generous drizzle of organic olive oil
  • A drizzle of red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A bit of shaved parmesan


  • Create a salad bed. I take what I have from my garden or buy a ready to eat bag from the grocery. Go with what you like. Even iceberg lettuce is fine.
  • Arrange the ingredients, other than the chicken, olive oil, vinegar and parmesan, over the salad.
  • Place the grilled chicken on top.
  • Drizzle the olive oil and vinegar.
  • Sprinkle the shaved parmesan.
  • Season with salt and pepper.


This is a great way to get rid of leftover chicken or any other meat. It’s a classic paleo meal. Play around with what you like. This is open to personal taste and creativity.
