Dr. Nancy’s Chicken Salad


by Dr. Nancy Rahnama

Director of Health & Nurition

This salad is found in the 5-Day RESET, and its also a staple in my regular menu.  Whenever I feel a bit off, this salad brings me back.  The foundation is kale, for greens and fiber, clean chicken for protein, and avocado, nuts and cheese for healthy fats.  

When Dr. Nancy was single and working 60 hours a week, she lived on this salad, and she still loves it to this day. This high-fiber, high protein meal has just the right amount of fat to help you feel full and satisfied while giving your body essential, nutrient-dense ingredients. After RESET, Dr. Nancy likes to add aged white cheddar cheese too. 

Serves: 2
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 0-30 minutes

Ingredients:

1-2 Organic chicken breasts, shredded

2-3 heads of Tuscan kale, chopped

3-6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

3-6 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2-3 avocados, sliced

Pine nuts, toasted (see below)

Handful of basil leaves

Handful of mint leaves

White cheddar cheese (omit during RESET)

 

Preparation:

Toast pine nuts in advance and set aside. If using rotisserie chicken, remove skin and separate white meat. If using baked chicken, lightly coat with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake at 450 degrees until cooked, about 15-20 minutes. Shred chicken into bite-sized pieces and set aside to cool. Wash kale, remove stems and cut leaves into bite size pieces, place in a large salad bowl. Wash mint and basil and cut into bite-sized pieces, adding them to the salad bowl along with shredded chicken, avocado. Add olive oil, and rice wine vinegar. Mix by hand, mashing avocado into chicken and kale to marry ingredients together. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Add more rice wine vinegar and olive oil to taste.

Serve in a salad bowl, top with toasted pine nuts and crumbled white cheddar cheese.
