Mexican Chicken Salad
This salad supplies the muscles with plenty of protein and the vitamin B6, which is important for a healthy protein metabolism.
If you can't get yellow tomatoes, you can use red ones. And if you like it really spicy, you can use more of the chili powder.

- 2 large Limes (or 7-8 tablespoons lime juice)
- 1 teaspoon Guajillo chili powder
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 4 Chicken breasts
- 7 ounces Corn
- 3 large, yellow tomatoes
- 1 large Kohlrabi
- 1 Red onion
- ½ bunch cilantro
- 2 ripe Avocados
- 11 ounces Yogurt (low-fat)
- 2 tablespoons roasted Pumpkin seed
Cut lime in half and squeeze (it should yield 7-8 tablespoons of juice). Mix 2 tablespoons of lime juice with the chili powder, 2 tablespoons oil, and oregano in a bowl.
Rinse chicken fillets, pat dry and place in a freezer bag. Add the lime-oil mixture, seal the bag and leave for 2 hours in the refrigerator (marinade).
Meanwhile, drain the corn well.
Rinse the tomatoes and cut into quarters, remove cores and seeds and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
Peel and cut kohlrabi into about 1/4-inch cubes. Peel the onion and chop finely. Rinse cilantro, shake dry, pluck leaves, and chop.
Mix corn, tomatoes, kohlrabi, onion and cilantro in a bowl. Combine 2 tablespoons oil, 2 tablespoons lime juice and salt and pepper to taste in another bowl and mix well.
Heat the remaining oil in a pan. Take chicken fillets from marinade and brown on each side over high heat for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat and continue to cook for about 8 minutes.
Place chicken fillets on a plate and let cool slightly. Then cut into 1/2-inch cubes or thin slices.
Halve, stone and peel avocados. Put the flesh of 1 avocado in a small bowl. Mix yogurt, 2 tablespoons lime juice, salt and pepper and puree with an immersion blender.
Rest of cut avocado flesh into 1/2-inch cubes and sprinkle with remaining lime juice. Add salt and pepper.
Pipe avocado cream with a piping bag onto plates. Top with the chicken, avocado cubes and corn salad. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and serve immediately.
