This is a hearty salad, that even the manliest salad hater will love.

It’s perfect to feed a crowd, I was able to feed my family of 4 and have more than half left over – you can make it go even further with extra salad stuff and dressing too. The beauty of this recipe is you can either prepare it ahead of time and enjoy it cold, or cook it and eat it warm. I hope you love it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Put your prepared potatoes into the simmering basket and coat the chopped chicken breast in the 50 g or 1.8 oz red pesto and put into the deep steaming tray.
  • Without washing the bowl, add 500 g or 17.6 oz water to mixer bowl, insert simmering basket, put the steaming tray in place and cook for 17-20 min/steaming temp/speed 3 or until cooked. Stir chicken part way through to ensure even cooking.
