I know you’ve been there. It’s a Tuesday, or a Wednesday, and your hunny want’s to have friends over, but you’re maxed out from last weekends liquid calories, or you’re just too exhausted from today’s financial advising work meeting. I HAVE GOT YOU. Don’t you sweat one minute!
My friends over at Hilary’s Eat Well, who I got to hug and squeeze at Expo East last weekend, aka creators of my favorite veggie burgers, hooked your girl up with their new line of “Millet Medley’s”, and they are PHENOMENAL for a weeknight meal, or gourmet hack. They are perfect for everyone, but especially for Bariatric Patients like myself, promoting a ton of protein in a whole grain carbohydrate option! Win-Win!
Here’s what I did.
I went with the Golden Curry this time, loving the golden raisins, and the warm spice of the curry flair! It’s packed with protein rich lentils, gluten free millet, and perfect organic seasoning to make you feel confident in a healthy mid-week-pick-me-up! I added the warm microwaveable pouch to fresh arugula, some other veggies in my fridge, and some meal-prep chicken to make a killer’ quick & healthy, Millet Curry Chicken Salad.
C h i c k e n S a l a d
3 cups cooked chicken, I used shredded chicken breast.
1 cup red grapes, halved.
1/3 cup Avocado Oil Mayo. (I used chosen foods).
1/4 cup chopped cilantro.
1/4 cup diced red onion.
2 tablespoons Indian Curry.
2 tablespoons Garam Masala.
T h e R e s t
1 bag Golden Curry Millet Medley.
5-6 cups fresh greens, like spinach, arugula, mixed greens.
assorted toppings, such as fresh veggies in your fridge- sliced red onion, bell pepper, tomato, shredded carrot, Marcona almonds, use what you have!
- Mix all ingredients for chicken salad together in separate bowl.
- Assemble the rest. Grab a large bowl and fill with greens.
- Cook Millet Medley’s according to package, and spoon over greens.
- Add your gorgeous Curry Chicken Salad. (use half, and save half for lunches all week, or be a good friend, and pile allllll of that delicious-ness on!)
- Garnish with your other toppings, I used red onion, red bell pepper, almonds, micro greens, and a stack of my favorite whole wheat flatbread/naan!
p r o t i p // I roll out small pieces of pre-made whole wheat pizza dough, spray with olive oil, and cook in my cast iron skillet to make a quick & easy flatbread!
So when your friends come over, leave all the ingredients in separate bowls for a Build Your Own Bowl experience, Create a huge bowl for gorgeous presentation,
-or, toss everything together and serve over the warm flatbread, for scooping and smashing, person to person.
