For the Chicken

  • 1 chicken breast cubed
  • 1 tangerine, 1/4 cup or orange juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons avocado oil or any

For the salad

  • cucumber slices
  • pumpkin seeds optional *
  • ¼ of avocado
  • hemp hearts are optional *

For dressing

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • fresh lemon juice to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar or any vinegar you like
  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave


  • Cut one skinless-boneless chicken breast into small cubes.
  • Marinate and grill it for 2-3 minutes on each side. Add it to your salad mix and any toppings of choice.
  • In a separate bowl or measuring glass whisk in the ingredients for the dressing, pour on top of the salad and enjoy.
  • This is absolutely amazing for meal prep if you store your dressing in a separate container.


You can use any toppings you like , if you don’t feel like making chicken just buy some and cut it up. The dressing can be any you love. Feel free to add tofu or chickpeas for a plant based salad and substitute the honey for agave or maple syrup.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
