Rich, creamy and tangy, ranch is a classic American dressing. For a lighter take on the original, we've replaced the traditional buttermilk and mayo with natural yoghurt. Tossed with caramelised red onion, nutritious kale & lentils and topped with lean chicken breast. Kale-orie cut but still delish!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken & Kale Salad With Ranch Style Dressing

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Peel and finely slice the red onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick, with a matching lid) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-low heat 

Once hot, add the sliced red onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 10-15 min or until softened and caramelised 

2 Chicken & Kale Salad With Ranch Style Dressing

Meanwhile, place your hand flat onto the chicken breast[s]

Slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with 2 [4] thinner pieces

3 Chicken & Kale Salad With Ranch Style Dressing

Add the sliced chicken to a baking tray 

Drizzle with 1 tsp [2 tsp] olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper

Put the tray in the oven and cook for 15-20 min or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

4 Chicken & Kale Salad With Ranch Style Dressing

Meanwhile, chop the chives finely, including the stalks

Combine the natural yoghurt with the white wine vinegar, dried oregano and chopped chives in a small bowl

Add a pinch of salt and pepper and give it a good mix up – this is your ranch-style dressing

5 Chicken & Kale Salad With Ranch Style Dressing

Drain and rinse the canned lentils 

6 Chicken & Kale Salad With Ranch Style Dressing

Once the chicken is almost done, add the pumpkin seeds to the tray and cook for 2-3 min or until toasted

7 Chicken & Kale Salad With Ranch Style Dressing

Once the onions are caramelised, add the shredded kale to the pan with a splash of water

Cover with a lid and cook for 3-5 min or until wilted

Once wilted, add the drained lentils and a generous pinch of salt and give it a good mix up 

Transfer everything to a large bowl, add most of the ranch-style dressing and give everything a good mix up – this is your kale salad
