Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Grill the chicken without any oil until cooked through and set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, place the eggs in a pan of water over high heat. Bring to the boil and time for 9 minutes from the time boiling starts. Remove from heat, drain and cool under a running tap. Set aside.
  3. Assemble all the remaining salad ingredients in a large decorative salad bowl.
  4. Chop the chicken and add to the salad.
  5. Toss the salad well to mix in. Peel and slice the eggs. Arrange the eggs on top.
  6. In the yoghurt pot, add the piri piri to taste (I used Nando's Piri Piri Sauce Hot with 1 heaped tabs). Mix well.
  7. Season the salad and serve. Pour the dressing over and enjoy.

What a great salad. Simple and clean, but the kicker is the yoghurt and piri piri. I used 0% fat Greek yoghurt and it worked fine. - 30 May 2013
