Chicken Salad with CBD Infused Lemon Dressing
Lunch is also an important meal, primarily to the fact that it raises your blood-sugar level in the middle of the day and enables you to focus for the remainder of the day.One of our favourite lunch recipes is chicken salad with CBD infused lemon dressing, which is a light but filling meal that will help to maintain a high metabolism during the rigours of the day.
What you’ll need:
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 4 chicken thighs, skinless and boneless, sliced
For the salad and dressing:
• 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
• Zest and juice 1½ lemons
• 2 tsp clear honey
• 1 ripe avocado, finely sliced
• ½ cucumber, sliced
• Cherry Tomatoes sliced
• 100g radishes, finely sliced
Start by rubbing 2 tablespoons of olive oil over your chicken pieces, before seasoning this with salt and black pepper, which has some amazing benefits.
Then heat your chicken in a frying pan of a medium-high heat for around 10 minutes, turning regularly to ensure that each piece browns evenly.
Once your chicken is cooked, set this aside in a large salad bowl for cooling.
When it comes to making your CBD-infused lemon dressing, simply mix a tablespoon is Dijon mustard with lemon zest and around two tablespoons of lemon juice.
Then add one-quarter cup of mayonnaise and up to two cloves of garlic (depending on taste), before infusing the mix with a dose of CBD oil.
Stir your dressing until this is emulsified, seasoning with salt and pepper as you do so.
Then, simply add your choice of chopped vegetables to the mix, with cucumber, radishes and avocado adding taste and texture in equal measure.
At this stage, all that is left is to stir in your chicken pieces and serve!
On a final note, you can infuse the dish with extra CBD oil by using this as part of the rub for your chicken.
More specifically, you can infuse this with vegetable oil, salt and pepper to increase your dose, without compromising the integrity of the dish.
