1. Cook the chicken breasts in water and a little spice, when cooked let them cool and then use food processor or your hands to break into thin tenders.

2. Boil the peas if they aren’t pre-cooked, and add them to the chicken tenders, add carrots and bell pepper and raisins and any other vegetables you prefer. Make it colourful.

3. Mix the yogurt and cottage cheese very well to make the sauce. Add the spices.

4. Mix some of the sauce with chicken so it doesn’t taste dry, and use the rest to drizzle on top of the salad. Sprinkle some black pepper over it.
