pan fried chicken and salad

Pan fried chicken with spinach salad is a low-carb, low-fat dish and is great for weight watchers. Easy to make and is very healthy…

My latest favorite salad is made by combining spinach and fresh beetroot, which is then drizzled with lemon juice. I don’t need any mayo or cheesy dressings for this particular salad. To make it a complete meal, I also topped the salad with pan fried chicken. Chicken is cooked without adding any oil. This chicken salad is definitely very healthy and is a perfect meal for weight watchers as it’s low-carb and low- fat. Try to serve fresh greens and veggies as a side dish with every meal.

Spinach-Beetroot Salad

The fresh beetroot tasted sweet, crispy and delicious.
