Chicken & Chickpea Salad

Some pretty awesome food comes out of our HideAway Haven kitchen.  Some of it is actually good for us and healthy too.

Chicken and Chickpea Salad


1 clove garlic, minced

1 red or green capsicum, seeded, ribs removed and finely diced

1/2 small red onion, diced

juice of 1/2 lemon or lime

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/2 punnet tomatoes, halved

1/4 bunch mint, leaves roughly chopped (use up to 1/2 if you love the flavour of mint)

1/2 bunch coriander, leaves roughly chopped 

1/2 avocado roughly chopped

1 cup chopped cooked chicken

Salad leaves or spinach and rocket leaves to serve


Combine the garlic, pepper, red onion, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste, in a large bowl.

Add the chicken, chickpeas, tomatoes, mint, avocado and coriander. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and toss over the lettuce.
