Smoky paprika chicken and avocado salad
- ½ cup buckwheat (or use brown rice or quinoa)
- 250g skinless chicken breast
- 1 small red onion, sliced
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika spray oil
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- ½ avocado, sliced
- 2 cups mixed salad leaves
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds, toasted, to garnish
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- 2 cherry tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 Cook buckwheat following packet instructions. Set aside and cool (this can be done ahead).
2 Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with paper and place chicken breast and red onion on it. Rub chicken with paprika and spray with oil. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until just cooked through. When cooked, remove from oven and, when cool enough to handle, slice.
3 Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine cherry tomatoes, avocado, lettuce and cooled buckwheat. In a food processor, blitz dressing ingredients until smooth, adding a little water if needed. Season.
4 Serve salad with chicken on top, garnished with pumpkin seeds. Spoon dressing over.
