Chicken, Goats Cheese & Pumpkin Salad

Chicken, Goats Cheese & Pumpkin Salad

This salad is awesome! Not to mention, it tastes amazing roasted and sprinkled with some Chilli Flakes. I’ve added spicy  chicken, a few handfuls of greens and goats cheese to make it into a delicious and nutritious meal. For the Veggie-lovers, you can use Chickpeas or Lentils instead of chicken!
