Recipe notes

It’s no big deal, if one or some ingredients are missing. Simply substitute it or use what you have & take the result as a type of salad in its own right. One can always then fine-tune the taste using some spices/kitchen herbs, or by adding 2, 3 spoonfuls of mayonnaise (for example if you have no plain yogurt around, or just want to try a different favor).

Such a salad with bread for example is quite satisfying and can suffice for 2 complete (cold) meals, but can of course be used as an accompaniment to a normal meal. In the latter case, it should suffice for 3 servings.

The preparation time increases by about 15 minutes, if you have to first fry the chicken breast pieces.
