Nutritional values

The chicken breast fillet supplies valuable protein and ensures that the complete daily requirement of niacin is covered. This B vitamin is important for the entire metabolism and has a dilating effect on the blood vessels.

This delicious salad is a creation from the "Brown Derby Restaurant" in Los Angeles, where it is on the menu under the name "Cobb Salad". Add a wholegrain baguette to your meal to gain some extra fiber.
