Week Fourty-One – Grilled Chicken Salad

Cost – £3.60

The Grilled Chicken Salad follows the same procedure from some of the vegetarian meals in the sense that the grilled chicken is unique to this meal. The chicken itself is surprisingly not strips, but just standard grilled chicken – topped with salad and salad dressing itself.

The real question here in fact is, is the grilled chicken actually any good? How does it rival compared to it’s brother, the Chicken Caesar Salad? I wouldn’t want to face Caesar myself.

The Grilled Chicken Salad in all of it’s glory. (no drink included)

In that respect, the Grilled Chicken itself tastes great. It tastes like a well cooked chicken from a BBQ, not too overdone but enough to taste the grill that manifests inside the actual chicken. It’s sweet and isn’t dry at all, making the chicken tasting even better then it has any right to.

What makes this chicken taste great and a better blend then that of it’s chicken caesar salad counterpart is not that the actual chicken itself tastes better then that of the chicken strips – it’s not – but is due to the grease factor. The grease is fundamentally less, allowing the dressing to further apply it’s taste. On top of this, the Grilled Chicken lends itself better to the idea of the salad, with the BBQ texture and taste blending in better with the dressing and the salad. It feels fundamentally right, which is something that the strips chopped up in the Chicken Caesar Salad does not lend itself too perfectly.

The grilled chicken lends itself tremendously to the dressing.

On top of this, there’s a lot to eat here like the Chicken Caesar Salad and the Grilled Chicken Salad also feels more healthy, which is probably what you’re looking for if you’re ordering a salad from a take-out chicken place. The only complaint I have is that the chicken itself is a bit dry and doesn’t taste as good as the strips if taken individually. It’s not hugely special, but the way it’s cooked does lend itself hugely to the final product. Remember however, that the salad unfortunately does not come with a drink, which lets it down slightly.

As a wise lady once said – “Never leave a fellow man thirsty.”
