Cajun Chicken Salad

Low Carb Lunch Recipes and Ideas
Recipe by Chris
Cajun Chicken Salad
Lunch is usually the toughest meal to cover as you are often at work, or busy, or out and about. This is a real simple dish that you can always fall back on.

Cook it quickly at lunch time, or if you aren't going to be anywhere where you can cook, make it up in the morning and pack it in a container and take it with you.


1 Chicken Thigh Fillet
Cajun Spices
Red Onion
Cottage Cheese
Olive Oil


1. Place the chicken thigh fillet in a small container with a splash of olive oil and sprinkle the amount of cajun spices you like.
2. Close the container lid and leave for 10 minutes to soak.
3. Cut up all the salad and put it on a plate (use any salad you like, its up to you)
4. Add small pieces of cottage cheese to the salad
5. Put your fry pan on a medium/high heat and bring to temperature.
6. Place the chicken thigh fillet into the frypan and tip the rest of the juices over top.
7. Fry until cooked.
8. Serve the chicken thigh fillet with the salad.

Additional Notes

I use Chicken Thigh Fillet for 2 reasons. Firstly they are tastier than breast fillets because they have more fat (yum... fat :)) and secondly they are usually cheaper than breast fillets.

If you work in an office or are going to be somewhere that has a sandwich press, you can use this to cook the chicken. Just prepare the salad and oil/spice marinade in the morning and take it with you.
