Easy Chicken Panzanella

This is an Easy Chicken Panzanella dish that was inspired by my last vacation in Tuscany. Panzanella is a chopped salad made with stale bread and tomatoes and other ingredients. I first tasted panzanella in Tuscany where it originates from, and I knew I had to make my own version at home. It is very popular to eat panzanella during the hot Tuscan summer and that’s why I decided to recreate it for the hot summer days we get here!

To make my version of panzanella, I grill some leeks and rustic bread chunks. I whisk up a grainy mustard, lemon and olive oil dressing in a large salad bowl which I combine with some tomatoes, chicken and parsley. Just before serving, I mix in the toasted bread and leeks and that’s it! Super quick and super tasty!
