Chicken and Chorizo Salad

Tis the season for yummy salads, tra la la la la… Salads do not need to be boring and here is one of my fave combos, so good I had it for dinner two nights in a row. Roasting a chicken and using the leftover meat for various dinners is a really cost effective way of eating meat as £2.50 will stretch to a minimum of 6 meals.

leftover chicken, 40gm chorizo, half a red onion, mozzarella, salad leaves, lemon, oil, honey, wholegrain mustard, tomatoes and balsamic glaze

15 mins serves 1

Start by heating a frying pan with a tbsp of oil, then gently fry a red onion. After a couple of minutes add the sliced chorizo. Once it is starting to darken in colour, add the chicken and then add a squeeze of lemon, 1tbsp of mustard and 2tbsp of honey. Mix together and cook for a further couple of minutes on a low heat. While it is cooking, make a bed of salad leaves with sliced tomatoes and a squeeze of balsamic. Top with the chicken and chorizo mixture and enjoy.

*If you would like some carbs, add a tortilla wrap cut into small squares when you are frying the onion with another tbsp of oil*
