Learn how to make this beautiful chicken corn avocado salad
If you are following me on PumpUp (@racheell) you’ll know that I love eating healthy and that I obviously love cooking. That’s why you can see so many dishes on my profile! Today I’ll share my first recipe with you, so that you can see for yourself that it isn’t hard to make your own healthy food.
This is the recipe from one of my first posts because you seemed to like it! It’s a salad with corn, grilled chicken and guacamole. I haven’t really indicated a specific amount for each ingredient; it’s that simple! I personally just prepare the amount that seems perfect for me at the moment, so you should do what seems best for you.
- Chicken breast
- Avocado (1/2 or 1 whole, depending on how hungry you are)
- Red onion
- Cilantro - about a handful
- Jalapeño or serrano (hot chilli)
- Sweet corn (1 can or less should do)
- Olive oil
For the chicken:
I like to marinate the chicken with a squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper for at least 2 hours. Once the chicken has absorbed these ingredients, preheat your skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Cook chicken in skillet, don’t add any liquid. Reduce heat to medium and cook until meat is no longer pink and the juices run clear, turning chicken occasionally, about 8-12 minutes. Remove from heat and chop into pieces.
For the guacamole:
Smash the avocado until it looks like a paste. Finely chop the onion and set some aside for the sweet corn. Next, chop the cilantro and the hot chilli. Add onion mix to smashed avocado, followed by a squeeze of lemon juice (as much as you like. I like to add a lot because it’s my favorite thing in the entire world) and a pinch of salt. Mix everything together.
For the corn:
I like to use sweet corn. Add chopped red onion to corn, a bit of olive oil, and salt and pepper, to taste. That’s it, super easy!
Presentation of the dish:
I think presentation is one of the most important things for me, it makes me feel happy and it keeps me motivated to eat a beautifully presented dish, so for this one in particular I like to use a medium bowl and put all my food together, but distribute it nicely so all that I prepared shows off.
