  • 1 Big boneless chicken breast
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to season
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup croutons
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
  • 3 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic crushed
  • 3 tbsp thick low-fat yogurt
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp mustard paste/sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • some fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup dry parmesan cheese
  • some toasted walnuts and almonds
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 6-8 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 medium lettuces chopped


  • In the first step, take a chicken breast and marinate it with the help of salt, ginger garlic paste, paper, olive oil, fresh thyme, and vinegar
  • Now spread red chili flakes on this mixture and covered all the ingredients equally in chicken breast and marinate it nicely.
  • Now you can place it on a corner for 20 minutes
  • Take the second bowl and add light mayonnaise and thick yogurt, which will help to maintain consistency
  • Now add mustard sauce, olive oil, and lemon juice on this mixture
  • Add Worcestershire sauce and green cilantro in it. Then add a little salt and mix well with maintaining the consistency of the mix.
  • It’s ready so that you can put that on your fridge
  • Take the third bowl and put chopped onions, tomatoes, and lettuce. You can also add your favorite veggies to it.
  • Seasonal vegetables also can be part of this. Just mix it well and keep it aside.
  • Take a nonstick pan and heat olive oil and put your chicken breast on that pan and cook it for 3 minutes for each side
  • While it becomes in the golden brown color, you can remove it and let it cool down a
    bit then cut into medium pieces.
  • Add your chicken pieces on the vegetable's bowl and then take the second bowl and mix all the ingredients smoothly
  • Add Almonds, walnuts, croutons, and celery on it. Now mix them well.
  • Now, for additional and mouth-watering touch, you can add Parmesan cheese also on it
  • Again, mix it, and after brewing, it’s ready to serve on a plate.


I am using here thick yogurt as it gives your salad a perfect consistency rather than regular yogurt. Another vital cooking fact is that cooked chicken gives crunchiness and more taste to your salad, so people eat it with love.
