Warm apple salad with chicken breast, tomato and romaine.

Posted in: Chicken, main dish, Recipes, Salad

This recipe was adapted from one of the restaurants I loved to have lunch back in Kyiv.

It’s really simple, warm in colors and flavors, but mainly fast to cook! Your family will love it and there are different variations of how it can be cooked.

You can use chicken breasts, chicken liver and today I tried chicken gizzards. (It was good with gizzards as well, although their meat is too tough for this recipe, my personal opinion).

Serving(s): 1 plate (in the picture I show you 2/3 of the salad I cooked. I show the salad with chicken gizzards in this pic)

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes (gizzards 30-35 minutes)

So for the recipe you will need:

1 chicken breast (or 1/2 lbs. of chicken liver/ gizzards)

3-4 Romaine leaves

1 tomato

1 big green apple

1 medium tomato

1 medium white onion

Pinch of salt

Pinch of pepper

3 tablespoons of cooking oil (or  2 tablespoons of cooking oil, 1 tablespoon of butter)

You may add herbs.

Step 1: Carefully wash your chicken, and cut into small pieces, add salt fresh ground pepper, mix well. Set the frying pan on medium heat, add the cooking oil and start cooking the chicken.

Step 2: Wash tomato, romaine apple. Peel apple, onion.

Step 3: Chop the onion and add to your chicken after it’s been cooking for 5 minutes. Cook 10 more minutes (the gas, may be turned down to a minimum after the chicken’s been cooking for 10-12 minutes)

Step 4: Cut the apple in quarters, remove the apple seeds.  Cut the apple quarters in halves lengthways and then slice the apple crosswise.

Step 5: Set the second frying pan. Add butter or cooking oil and start caramelizing your apples at medium heat. (5-10 minutes, until soft and flavorful)

Step 6: Cut the tomato (same as you were cutting apple: quarters then quarters in halves lengthways, then cut the tomato crosswise)

Add apples to your chicken and onion and turn the gas off. Add your tomatoes.

Put the romaine leaves on the plate(s) and put the salad on top.

Your salad is ready! It’s flavorful and delicious! You’ll LOVE it!

Serve warm, because it loses its charm when cold:-)

    Lovely salad. I like chicken livers and gizzards but I hardly come across recipes using those. Chickens here in the UK actually come without the giblets but livers are sold separately. I can imagine how nice they are in salads.

    Salad looks great! I doubt I could convince my wife to have one with gizzards, but that just means more for me
