  • 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
  • One medium onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 6-8 cherry tomatoes halved
  • Two 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 add your favorite veggies to it. Seasonal vegetables also can be part of this. Just mix it well and keep it aside.
  • Take a non-stick 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.
