My family’s favorite Lebanese salad becomes a main dish when topped with tender, juicy chicken tawook and crispy za’atar-scented baked pita chips.
Cooking once and eating twice is the name of the game when you work from home with two kids under the age of three! Whenever I cook chicken, pork or steak I always try to double or triple the batch to use throughout the week for a quick lunch. Having healthy leftovers on hand not only saves my sanity but it also helps keep my waistline in check.
Recently, I was lucky enough to not only have leftover Lebanese Chicken Tawook on hand but I also had a big stash of Baked Pita Chips with Za’atar sitting around. It took about five seconds to figure out what I was going to be having for lunch that day!
Chicken Tawook Fattoush Salad is everything you want in a satisfying entree salad: juicy chicken, crisp vegetables, crunchy pita chips and a zesty lemon garlic vinaigrette to go on top. It is heaven in every single bite.
Your fork is waiting.
- 4 servings Fattoush Salad
- 4 servings Lebanese Chicken Tawook
I love making this salad with leftover, cold chicken tawook but if you are using warm chicken, wait to top the salad until just before serving to avoid wilting the lettuce.
