Simple chicken salad

A simple chicken salad is the classic warm weather dish – but how can you keep it interesting?

The answer is also simple. Gorgeous summer vegetables and subtle flavours means you’ll never tire of this protein-packed dish.

Asparagus and sweet pepper sit effortlessly beside delicate flavours of garlic and dill, all topped with the unexpected crunch of sunflower seeds meaning our Warm Chicken Salad will remain a favourite for many seasons to come.


  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 bundle asparagus, tough ends snapped off and discarded
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp mustard

  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill
  • ½ clove garlic, crushed
  • 120g bag mixed salad leaves
  • 2 tbsp black olives, halved
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Bacofoil Non-Stick Foil


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas mark 6.
  • Line a large roasting tin with a sheet of Bacofoil Non-Stick Foil, dull side up. Arrange the chicken, asparagus and red pepper in the tin and season well with salt and pepper. Cook in the oven for 20 mins.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mustard, vinegar, garlic and dill to make a dressing. Season to taste.
