Chicken and bacon salad

Bacon and butter make it all better!!! That's what I say to all the nay sayers! I also believe bacon does really well in a salad.

This salad is dead easy I'm not even sure it needs a recipe. All the same, here goes..... A recipe for a chicken and bacon salad. If you must, toss the salad between some bread and voila, you got yourself a sammich!!

Serves 2

  • 1 small head of lettuce

  • A handful of cherry tomatoes

  • 1 small onion chopped into half rings

  • 1 chicken breast

  • 100 grams streaky bacon

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup balsamic Vinegar

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

For this salad we start off with the meats. Season your chicken breast with salt and pepper and then grill it for about 3 minutes on each side. Once cooked, set aside the chicken. In a pan, cook your streaky bacon to your liking and set aside. Once both meats have cooled enough to handle, cut your chicken breast into strips and cut your bacon into large squares and set aside.

Take your cherry tomatoes and halve them. Place them into a bowl together with the onions, bacon and chicken.

For the dressing, combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and some black pepper and whisk well. Drizzle the dressing over the chicken mix and toss the salad.

You can add the lettuce leaves last and toss the salad again, or you can layer the salad mix over the lettuce and serve.
