Put the coconut oil in pan have temperature at medium heat for a few minutes
I use chicken souvlaki skewers from my favorite butcher (La boucherie in the St Lawrence market in Toronto)
Remove the chicken off the sticks and empty the chicken breasts into the pan when heated and begin to cook

While the chicken is cooking begin to prepare your salad, I use spinach because it’s higher in fibre and antioxidants than lettuce.
Empty the spinach into a large mixing bowl.
I then use a tablespoon each of extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Not only does it taste great but I find the apple cider vinegar controls my appetite and is very low in cholesterol.
Use a pair on tongs to mix the salad and oils together.

The time you’ve done all the mixing and prep, the chicken should be done if not make sure the chicken is cooked before you mix it with your salad. Last thing you want is salmonella poisoning!
Place the chicken on the spinach. I then top off the chicken by adding half an avocado to the mix.
Use the tongs once again to mix all the ingredients
