Now ... if you are a fan of juicy, flavourful, tasty chicken, I'm sure you will like this satisfyingly filling salad.

This looks very good...and healthy. My daughter was on keto for awhile, but an unhealthy keto. Stuffed herself with lots of cold cuts, tons of bacon, and all these rich fatty cream sauces. Only fruit she basically ate was asparagus wrapped in bacon. Put her in the hospital three times before she finally gave up on it. But hers was not a healthy keto.

Dijon mustard adds a lift to a whole range of dishes doesn't it? It is a staple in my store cupboards.

Hi Jan,
I appreciate your comments on my blog, and I usually look at your blog but don't say much. My approach to healthy cooking is so different from yours, so the recipes aren't the kind that I would use. I'm more of an omnivore, though for the moment I'm not buying meat. Your chicken salad today does sound quite nice.

be well... mae at

LOL. My chicken has to be so dry it drives my Hubby nuts.
I love to be able to get the tiniest stripe off by hand. But the sauce sounds interesting!

Hello Annie
Thanks for letting me know you made the Italian Chicken dish, and that you enjoyed it :)

If other readers are interested the recipe Annie is referring to is Hunter's chicken, which is an Italian tomato stew also known as chicken cacciatore. It's a pub classic that's very easy to make at home.

All the best Jan
