(Home) Office lunch: Radicchio salad with chicken

October 14, 2015

This recipe is from my mum who gave me the Radicchio together with instructions and it sounded so good that I had to make it the next day. When I was a kid I hated this type of salad because it can be quite bitter. My parents soaked the leaves always in warm water for half an hour to extract some of this bitterness. But the dressing was what made us all go crazy: it’s with tomato paste and cream. The chicken here is just to make it a complete meal.

All you need is:
– half a Radicchio salad
– 1 chicken breast
– 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
– salt & pepper
– 1 Tbsp pine nuts
– 1-2 oranges
– some cucumber (optional ā€“ I had this little cocktail cucumbers and I had to use them!)

For the dressing:
– 1 tsp tomato paste
– 2 Tbsp cream
– 1 pinch of salt
– 1 pinch of pepper
– 3 Tbsp vinegar
– 1 Tbsp olive oil

Put the pine nuts in a pan and roast them until golden. Set them aside. Season the chicken breast and put it into the pan. Roast on both sides until it’s done. Cut the Radicchio into slices and put it into a bowl of warm water (optional but it will reduce some of the bitterness). Cut the oranges into slices and the cucumber into pieces.

For the dressing put all ingredients into a cup and stir well. Put the salad into a bowl and season with the dressing. Cut the chicken breast into slices and arrange it on top, sprinkle with the cucumber, pine nuts and oranges.

This is the last post for the series (Home) Office Lunch that will appear this year. Since I will be on holiday pretty soon and it’s already quite stressful to get everything ready, I won’t have time to think of new recipes.
