Roasted chicken breast (as much as you need to meet your macros – I used 120g)
– Celery stick, chopped
– 1/2 onion chopped
– Dill, chopped (small handful)
– Parsley, chopped (small handful)
– 0% fat Cottage cheese (I used 60g)
– 1 tsp Mustard
– lemon juice
– Salt and pepper to taste
– lettuce to serve

Method of cooking:

1. Roast chicken breast in oven (mine took 25 mins) and allow to rest and cool. Once cooled, roughly chop.
2. In a bowl, mix the chopped onions, celery, parsley and dill.
3. In another bowl, mix the cottage cheese, mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper and chopped chicken.
4. Combine chicken mixture to chopped onions and celery mixture.
5. Refrigerate mixture for an hour (I missed this step as I didn’t want to wait!)
6. Serve on a bed of lettuce and other salad items e.g tomatoes, cucumbers etc or add more toppings to your taste!
7. Enjoy!
P.S. this also makes a fab sandwich filling!!
