● 500 gr chicken breast
● 1/2 yellow and 1/2 red bell pepper, cut julienne
● 8 nr green friggitelli peppers, cut julienne
● 1 tbsp celery leaves, finely chopped
● 50 gr celery stems, thinly sliced
● 40 gr pine nuts, toasted

Start by seasoning 500 grams of chicken breast with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat some olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat and sear the chicken breast for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Then, let it cool and finish cooking it sous vide style in a steam oven set to 65°C for 1
hour. Alternatively, cook the chicken breast directly in the pan until the internal temperature reaches 75°C. Slice the cooked chicken breast thinly along the grain of the meat and gently shred the meat. In a large bowl, mix 1/2 julienne-cut yellow and 1/2 red bell pepper, 8 julienne-cut green friggitelli peppers, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped celery leaves, 50 grams of thinly sliced celery stems, 40 grams of toasted pine nuts, 40 grams of soaked raisins, 40 grams of desalted capers, 60 grams of halved pitted olives, 10 sliced salad greens leaves, 80 grams of thinly sliced spring onions, and 8 quartered cherry tomatoes. Drizzle pumpkin seeds oil over the vegetable mix, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add a splash of red wine vinegar for extra flavor. Add the shredded chicken to the vegetable mix and toss until everything is well combined. Serve the chicken salad in a bowl and enjoy!
