High in protein and low in carbohydrates - this spicy salad is perfect for all low carb fans. Leeks are a vegetable particularly rich in zinc and have other valuable ingredients that support the immune system and can thus prevent diseases.

When buying chicken breast fillets, it is best to reach for organic goods, as these are not contaminated with antibiotic residues, unlike conventional goods.

Preparation steps


Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frying pan. Sauté chicken in it, turning, for 4-5 minutes. Then place in an ovenproof dish and cook in a preheated oven at 110 °C / 225 ˚F for about 8-10 minutes.


In the meantime, clean and wash the leeks and cut them diagonally into rings. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan. Sauté leeks in it for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper, remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, wash apples, quarter, core, cut crosswise into thin slices and sprinkle with lemon juice.


Whisk together broth, vinegar, salt, pepper, mustard, maple syrup and remaining oil and stir in yogurt.


Remove chicken from oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Mix leeks with apple slices, spread on plates and drizzle with dressing. Slice chicken breasts crosswise and place on plates. Sprinkle chicken leek salad with paprika powder and sesame seeds and serve.
