Perfect for kids and adult lunch boxes alike, this Chicken Caesar Salad (with quirky Qukes ® baby snacking cucumbers, and vibrant, delectable Tomato Medley) will ensure the family never brings home a full lunchbox again.


Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 3 Chicken Breast Fillets
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Garlic Clove, crushed
  • 1 Small Baguette, thinly sliced
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Green Baby Cos, trimmed
  • 1 Red Baby Cos, trimmed
  • 1 cup Caesar Salad Dressing
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 bunch Coloured Dutch Carrots, trimmed, scrubbed, & halved lengthways
  • 250g The Original grape tomatoes, halved
  • 250g Qukes® Baby Snacking Cucumbers, sliced
  • 60g Parmesan, finely grated

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced. Brush chicken with a little olive oil and season. Heat a frying pan or barbecue plate over medium-high until hot. Add chicken, cook 3 minutes each side. Remove to an oven tray and transfer to the oven. Roast for 5 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside 10 minutes then thinly slice.
  2. Add the garlic to the remaining oil then brush over both sides of sliced bread. Put bread onto oven tray in a single layer and bake 8-10 minutes or until light golden. Set aside to cool.
  3. Put the eggs in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, stirring to centre the egg yolk. Reduce the heat to medium. Simmer for 4 minutes. Refresh under cold water. Peel and slice the eggs. Roughly chop 6 green and 6 red baby cos leaves.
  4. Whisk dressing, mustard and olive oil together. Season. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons dressing into the base of each jar. Divide the carrots, tomatoes, qukes® baby cucumbers, cos, egg, chicken and parmesan into six portions, then layer them into the jars. Secure the lid. Keep in the fridge for up to 6 hours. Serve with croutons and extra parmesan if desired.

Notes... Cooking Tip: If you don’t want to make the salad in the jars, simply toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Spoon over the dressing then scatter over the croutons to serve.

  • Presents nice in a jar, but not as suitable for the kids lunchboxes. A full cup of dressing, a table spoon of oil and 2 tsp of mustard, that’s a such a huge amount !! We’re not keen on dressing, mustard and olive oil over our salad here.
