How To Make A Chicken Salad Recipe

Orange Sesame Chicken Salad Recipe

On today’s Live Lean TV episode, Jess and I are having lots of fun as we mess around in the kitchen while showing you how to make a chicken salad recipe.

We’re proving that salad does not have to be boring.

How To Make A Salad That Tastes Good

We love showing you how to make healthy salads on our Live Lean TV YouTube channel.

This delicious, healthy, and very colorful Orange Sesame Chicken Salad recipe gives you a sneak peak, as it’s one of the recipes from our Eat Clean Live Lean Cookbook.

So for this chicken salad recipe, we’re using a few different colorful ingredients that can be prepared very quickly.

Ingredient notes:

  • Go with organic spinach when possible.
  • Since spinach is a free food, dump as much of it into the bowl as you want.
  • It’s quicker and easier to buy carrots that are already pre-shredded.
  • We used naval oranges, but any type of orange works.
  • The oranges will make it very juicy.
  • It’s always important to add a good serving of a muscle building protein source to your salads, such as chicken breast, to fill you up and keep you lean.
  • We’re using pre-cooked chicken that we already had prepared in bulk to use later.
  • The sesame seeds add a crunchy texture and is also a healthy source of fat.
  • If you’re wondering about the salad dressing, we’re using nature’s salad dressing, lime juice.

This orange sesame chicken salad recipe is so easy to prepare.

It also contains so much color and tons of vitamins and minerals.

  1. This is so easy. Throw a bunch of spinach into a bowl. Just try to make sure you get it into the bowl. That's important.
  2. Next, add 1 cup of shredded carrots, 1/3 cup of raisins, and 2 thinly sliced oranges into the bowl.
  3. Next, we need to add some protein to build muscle. We're using pre-cooked sliced chicken breast.
  4. Top the salad with 2 tbsp of sesame seeds.
  5. Cut a lime in half, and if you need to work on your forearm strength, grip it and squeeze the juice on top of the salad. Always get your workout in, no matter where you are.
  6. Add the salad to 4 plates and eat it right away.

  1. For vegan people, you can replace the chicken with tempeh, an absolutly healthy substitute for meat, high in protein, low in fat, and delicious ! :0)

  2. Hi Brad.

    I have recently found a diet that says: no carbohydrates (max 40 a day) and eat the same kind of food every day. in other words salad and chinken only (plus water to drink). It says tthat you can loose op to 0.5 kilo a day (1.1 punds) First of all is it healthy? and if it is, is it then good to put in with the P90X training program?
    Hope i will soon hear from you.

  3. I don’t eat salads alot, because when i do i don’t use dressing because i can’t find a good healthy one. So i go about 2 days of eating a big healthy salad (no dressing) and i give up on it. I still do the veggie drink for dinner w some protein like i stated before as much as possible, especially to get my greens in. This salad looks pretty good ,the lime might do the trick for me , along with the orange. definately going to try it, and very pumped for that recipe book. Just made your turkey burgers the other night, a nd they were delicious. Also did the meltdown last night and loved it! Make it fun, but challenging at the same time, you know what your doing.

  4. dude, haven’t watched your videos in a while but SOOO glad you took of that beginning part after stay tuned!! it was ridiculously annoying!! goodluck!

  5. Hey Brad have you ever had cactus… i had sum today with pork and salsa …. i buy Embasa sliced Tender Cactus .. well i was wondering if you could tell me the benefits of it …..

  6. yeah!! thanks! we had a great time filming it. Yes! It’s so much easier to eat healthy when you make bigger quantities and save some for later. That way you’re not cooking all day every day. Pre-Prepping is the way to go!

  7. This I can do… Also, just tried sweet potatoes for the first time this week and they were AWESOME… and that was with nothing on them… Good Night! I will definitely try this tomorrow
    Thanks Brad!
