Peri Peri Chicken Salad

I looooove peri peri! If you do too, you will love this chicken salad that is quick, healthy and satisfying with a great nutritional profile to keep you fuelled. If you aren’t a fan of spices or peri peri, you can of course, leave out the spices/dressing and opt for other options ??‍♀️.

When my stomach was really bad, I had to eliminate sugar and preservatives altogether so anything that came in a bottle was a big no-no!  I have since been able to add sauces/dressings back into my diet as a “sometimes” food, but I don’t have them daily.  I usually make my own dressings with a base of lemon juice and olive oil but because I love peri peri so much this salad is an exception ?.


• 150g chicken breast

• Capsicum, cut into strips

• Olive oil

• Mixed salad

• 1/5 of an avocado

• Red onion, very finely sliced

• 1 x tomato, diced

• @nandosaus peri peri sauce (I like medium)


– Cover dinner plate with mixed salad and top with chopped onion, tomato and avocado

– Toss Chicken with spices (chilli, garlic, onion, paprika, salt & pepper).

– Heat olive oil in fry pan, add chicken & capsicum.

– Once Chicken is cooked, remove from the pan and add to salad plate.

– Continue to cook capsicum until they start to char a little – this is how I like them ?

– Spoon @nando’s peri peri sauce over chicken and salad.

– Top with charred capsicum strips
