Updated on May 23, 2017

A little chicken and salad can suffice.

  • In summer I love a piece of grilled chicken and salad. So many combinations too.
  • Sweet and sour cold chicken can also be tasty for a change in scenery!

Who likes a chicken salad?

Great idea for a summer lunch around the pool!

Presentation is also important

Love eating a combination of fresh green lettuce salad combined with chicken. You cut back on too many calories when you lose the french fries and eat this instead.

Many Ways With Chicken


  • Amazing how versatile chicken is and how many different ways there are to produce a delicious meal!
  • Cook two or three big chickens in cooking bags and then store in the deep freeze ready to assemble into a quick party dish for friends or family. Love to do this ahead of time, so that the preparation is so much easier on the day of your party.
  • Leftover chicken is so nice and mixed with some fried rice and herbs and spices. Another meal that is great for a light lunch or supper dish.To make this extra special add some fried bacon pieces and mushrooms.
  • Take a ready cooked chicken and remove the skin and bones and start by layering it in a flat casserole baking dish with grated cheese , chopped spring onions and a tin of good mushroom soup. Season with garlic flakes, salt and pepper. Crumble potato crisps on the top mixed with dried bread crumbs. Dot the top with small pieces of butter and bake in a moderate oven until the top is brown and crisp. Approximately for one hour. Serve with ribbon noodles and a fresh garden salad.
  • Ready cooked chicken is such a staple, ready to use with other salad items on a platter for parties on the patio. Try it with a cheese sauce and serve on a lovely oven baked potato that has been split in the middle. Top with grated cheese and finish under the grill.
  • Enjoy creating your own chicken dish with your own creative twist!

Who Else Loves Chicken Pita Bread - For A Quick Meal?


  • I have found that the pita bread pockets are the easiest way to make a healthy light meal!
  • Normally I buy the brown ones and keep them in our freezer ready for the next meal in a hurry. We are going to have them for lunch.
  • Inside will be sliced smoked chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, spring onions and some mixed herbs and spices. To finish off will be a lathering of creamy salad dressing in garlic and feta.
  • There are many combinations but this will be the one for today.
  • These salad pita's are less fattening than greasy burgers. We are really trying to shave off some inches without starving the body of essential nutrients and proteins.
  • Have you Pita bread in your freezer?
