Step by step recipe with photo
I would call the salad with arugula and chicken breast very light and dietary. I cook such a dish mainly for dinner, especially after the long January holidays and feasts - that's when you want greenery. The mayonnaise in the salad can be substituted for Greek yogurt or sour cream if you are on a diet, although it is already low in calories. The celery stalk adds juiciness to the dish, and pickled mushrooms give piquancy, although they can be replaced with pickled cucumbers, capers, etc., even with a sweet and sour apple. Experiment with flavors and prepare a unique dish every time!
Rinse the arugula and celery stalks, cut the stalks into small pieces and put everything on a plate - this will be the green base of the salad.
Pick up the boiled chicken fillet by hand into the fibers and lay it on top of the greens. Remember that boiled meat should be chilled - boil it in advance for 25-30 minutes and refrigerate. As a chicken fillet, you can use a chicken breast, drumstick, quarter, removing the skin from them.
Cut the marinated mushrooms in half, if they are large, and also put on a plate.
Grate hard cheese with fine holes. If desired, you can use soft cheese, smoked and even melted cheese. Season the dish with salt and pepper, garnish with drops of mayonnaise, sour cream or yogurt. The recipe uses mayonnaise with mustard beans.
Serve the salad with arugula and chicken breast to the table immediately after cooking.
