You can cook seasoned chicken breasts as outlined below or you can alternatively use leftover meat from my Slow Cooker Whole Chicken recipe to cut out steps ahead of time.

Fun Health Facts

Chicken is lean meat generally thought of as a healthier option than red meat. It is loaded with B vitamins, minerals, protein, and is lower in saturated fat than beef. The protein, in particular, helps us to feel more full. This in turn promotes healthy weight management and reduces the risk of heart disease.

While many think of cucumber as a vegetable, it is technically a fruit. Cucumber is another amazing food option as it is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Among numerous health benefits, cukes are 96% water so they help to promote hydration.

Carrots are packed with antioxidants and are thought to promote healthy eyes, lower cancer risk, boost the immune system and aid in constipation.

 Tips & Tricks

  • If chicken breasts are large, cut into smaller, thinner chunks before cooking.

  • Daikon radishes would do great with this pickling process if you can find them!

  • If you can tolerate bread, try a roll or baguette. Hollow out the middle and stuff with these ingredients!
