There’s nothing wrong with taking a shortcut to a good meal, and BBQ chicken from a supermarket or a specialist takeaway store is a great way to get dinner done in a rush.

Use leftovers for a light lunch or second dinner, and don’t throw the chicken skin in the bin! It’s a great source of collagen and vitamin K2.

Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 0 minutes


  • 120g BBQ chicken with skin on
  • 50g (1 cup) shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1/4 medium red capsicum, diced
  • 1/2 ripe medium avocado
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) olive oil
  • 35g parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp (15g) pine nuts


  1. Assemble all the salad ingredients and drizzle with olive oil.
  2. Top with parmesan cheese and pine nuts.
  3. Enjoy the chicken on the side or shredded on top.
