Middle Eastern Chicken Salad with Tahini Dressing

5/5 (2)



  • Step 1.

    Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then cook them in a film of oil in a frying pan over medium heat, for about 10 minutes or until they are cooked through. Turn half way through cooking. Allow them to cool slightly, then shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces.

  • Step 2.

    In a large bowl, combine the baby spinach leaves, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, chickpeas, chopped parsley and mint.

  • Step 3.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, lemon juice, water, garlic, olive oil, and salt until smooth. If the dressing is too thick, add more water, a little at a time, until you reach a pourable consistency.

  • Step 4.

    Add the shredded chicken to the salad bowl. Drizzle the tahini dressing over the salad, then toss everything together until well combined and evenly coated with the dressing.

  • Step 5.

    Divide the salad among serving plates and serve immediately.
