Sweet Chilli Chicken and Bean Salad - with Chick Peas
1 pkg ground chicken
1 cup sweet chilli jelly (Red Pepper Jelly) - half is for dressing
1 cup chopped red onions - half is for salad
1 cup feta cheese - half is for salad
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 garlic cloves
1/8 cup lemon juice
1/8 cup chopped cilantro
3 cups fresh green beens
1 cup chick peas
1 celery stock
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups chopped baby spinach
1 tsp sugar
FYI - You can use VH sweet chilli sauce instead of the jelly as well.
Using 1 pd. package ground chicken add 1/2 cup sweet chilli sauce, 1/2 cup chopped onions, 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, 1 egg, bread crumbs, sea salt and 2 of the minced garlic cloves. Mix together and flatten and shape into 3 round flat circles (like flat hamburger patties) and place on a greased cookie sheet. I Sprinkled bread crumbs on top of patties as well. Bake in 400 degree oven for approx. 40 mins.
Slightly cook beans for a few mins but don’t over cook - you want them to be crunchy. I grilled mine slightly and put in covered container for a few mins. Then in a medium bowl add chopped beans, chick peas, 1/2 cup chilli sauce (red pepper jelly),1/2 cup chopped red onions, 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, chopped cilantro, chopped celery and half of the chopped spinach, 2 tbsp lemon juice, apple cider vinegar 1 minced garlic cloves, 1 tsp sugar. Mix and leave in fridge for 1 hour.
To plate - add the remainder of the chopped spinach and then add the cooked chicken patties and then top with salad. Sprinkle with feta cheese and enjoy!
