This is my own recipe!!

You will need:

2 chicken breasts

1 whole Lebanese cucumber

Lemon Essential Oil

Pepita Seeds

Black Pepper Essential Oil

Lime Essential Oil

Mayonaise

 

Method:

  1. Poach the chicken (by putting the two breasts of chicken in boiling water until cooked through- this can take anywhere up to 30m-40m)
  2. Shred your chicken, if you want it thicker you can use a fork, but if you want it thinner you can use a machine eg. Thermomix
  3. Add in your mayonaise. Once again, this is a choice. You can put more in for a creamier texture, or less in for a thicker texture.
  4. Ground up the pepitas. Don’t ground them too small, just enough to add a little crunch.
  5. Add in one drop of each essential oil. (I would suggest using a tooth pick to add a small amount in at a time)
  6. Cut up the cucumber. Then place small piles of the chicken onto the cucumber.
