Roasted Chicken and Pomegranate Salad

Roasted Chicken and Pomegranate Salad

Recipe by Giulia


Cooking time





This is a super-easy recipe I invented when I came across a pomegranate and it was lunchtime. You’ll just need a very good non-stick pan and a little bit of patience, to take out the seeds from the pomegranate fruit (I personally find the pomegranate seeds they sell ready to eat quite tasteless).


  • 300 gr mini chicken breast fillets

  • 1 pomegranate

  • 1 bag of lamb lettuce

  • 1 William pear (optional)
    rock salt

  • red and black pepper

  • SUGGESTED DRESSING (citronette):
  • 40 gr lemon juice

  • 60 gr extra virgin olive oil

  • 0.5 gr grounded black pepper

  • 4 gr salt

  • Cooking Utensils:
  • 1 non-stick pan

  • Mini-whisk (if you don’t have it a normal whisk will do the job!)


  • Put your non-stick pan on full whack
  • Once the pan is boiling hot, put some rock salt on it (this is the easier way to grill chicken if you don’t have a grill) and after a while add your chicken fillets
  • Sprinkle some salt (not much needed as you already put some on the pan) over your chicken fillets and be generous grating on them some red and black pepper
  • Wait until they’re cooked on one side and turn them over (if they’re sticking to the pan, that means they’re not cooked yet)
  • After 10 minutes they should be ready (to be sure, cut the thickest fillet and make sure is well done but still juicy inside)
  • On a plate put your washed lamb’s lettuce, place the chicken fillets on top and sprinkle with some pomegranate seeds
  • To make it even tastier cut some fine slices of green William pear to add to your salad
  • Finally add a drizzle of the citronette dressing that can be easily prepared by whisking together lemon juice, salt, oil and pepper (I generally use a mini whisk) until you’ll obtain a dense sauce).


  • This is a really easy meal you can bring to work as well (I usually place the chicken and the citronette in two different boxes- you may want to heat the chicken a bit if it’s winter! )!

    Enjoy your meal!
