Recipe: Delicious salad with chicken & beluga lenses

by MoniaMagdalena

This salad is a favourite. I love it

This chicken salad is perfect for a hot summer day, where you don’t want to eat lots of hot food.

The chicken is cooked in the oven with lots of delicious lemon & then mixed with arugula & beluga lenses.

Beluga lenses are really delicious in a salad.
Beluga lenses, got their name as they look a lot like beluga caviar. Did you know that? 😉

This is a very satiating salad. Serve with a delicious baguette 🙂
I will recommend that you make your own baguette (I have a recipe on baguettes, that are really easy & fast to make – They can be stored in the freezer too, for next time 😉 ) or buy a good baguette at the baker 🙂

The chicken & the beluga lenses are cooking exact the same amount of time – 20 minutes.
Therefore … When you have put the chicken in the oven, then immediately start cooking the lenses.
If you do that, both things are done at the same time – Cook smart 😉

In the 20 minutes it is cooking, you could prepare the salad.
