Zesty Baobab and Sesame Seed Chicken Salad Recipe {+ Giveaway}

*Review post/Sponsored prize*

If you follow my social media accounts, you will know that I enjoy cooking very much and that I also like to try new recipes.  I was recently sent some Organic Baobab powder to try, and it came along with a specially developed recipe for a Chicken salad. I decided to make the recipe for dinner last night and it was a total hit in our house. Everybody enjoyed it, even me who doesn’t usually eat any meat or chicken because I don’t like it. Also another bonus about the Baobab powder, is that it is 100% Gluten free so for those of us needing to follow a gluten-free diet, baobab powder makes a wonderfully tasty alternative to using flour as a coating for chicken.

We all know that regular wheat flour is really bland and that you need to season it substantially before coating meat, but baobab powder gives a zesty tang to the chicken and combined with the toasted nuttiness of sesame seeds used in this recipe, makes for a quick and easy, yet nourishing and wholesome meal. Baobab powder is loaded with Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium and digestive fibre which is something our diets often lack in the times we live in now.

We love to eat salad over at our house and we really know how to make a full dinner meal out of a huge plate of salad. But the recipe works equally well with vegetables or a starch like rice or mashed potatoes if you prefer that.

  1. This would be such a help. I must admit i get a bit lazy…. so having the already spiced coating from organic Baobab will make this a breeeze. Plus the fact that you mentioned it will work well with haloumi had me sold. yum yummi yum. I also think that because the second one is one the way this is the perfect absolutely healthy meal. With everything you need in one dish, especially if you make it with fish. Or even rotate it every second night.

  2. Looks amazing, I never thought about cooking with Baobab….will have to give it a try. Currently I add it to my smoothies. I guess its time to explore more uses for Baobab.
