Roasted Chicken and Pomegranate Salad

Roasted Chicken and Pomegranate Salad

This is a super-easy recipe I invented when I came across a pomegranate and it was lunchtime. You’ll just need a very good non-stick pan and a little bit of patience, to take out the seeds from the pomegranate fruit (I personally find the pomegranate seeds they sell ready to eat quite tasteless).

SERVES: one person

  • 1 non-stick pan
  • mini-whisk (if you don’t have it a normal whisk will do the job!)


  • 300 gr mini chicken breast fillets
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 1 bag of lamb lettuce
  • 1 William pear (optional)
  • rock salt
  • red and black pepper


  • 40 gr lemon juice
  • 60 gr extra virgin olive oil
  • 0.5 gr grounded black pepper
  • 4 gr salt


  1. Put your non-stick pan on full whack
  2. Once the pan is boiling hot, put some rock salt on it (this is the easier way to grill chicken if you don’t have a grill) and after a while add your chicken fillets
  3. Sprinkle some salt (not much needed as you already put some on the pan) over your chicken fillets and be generous grating on them some red and black pepper
  4. Wait until they’re cooked on one side and turn them over (if they’re sticking to the pan, that means they’re not cooked yet)
  5. After 10 minutes they should be ready (to be sure, cut the thickest fillet and make sure is well done but still juicy inside)
  6. On a plate put your washed lamb’s lettuce, place the chicken fillets on top and sprinkle with some pomegranate seeds
  7. To make it even tastier cut some fine slices of green William pear to add to your salad
  8. Finally add a drizzle of the citronette dressing that can be easily prepared by whisking together lemon juice, salt, oil and pepper (I generally use a mini whisk) until you’ll obtain a dense sauce).

This is a really easy meal you can bring to work as well (I usually place the chicken and the citronette in two different boxes- you may want to heat the chicken a bit if it’s winter! )!

Enjoy your meal!
