  • Method

    – Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.

    – Place the bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes, or until crispy. Transfer to a rack and set aside to cool. Once cooled, roughly chop, transfer to a bowl and set aside.

    – Meanwhile, place the chicken breasts into a pot and cover by just over 1 inch with water. Season generously with salt and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Once simmering, reduce heat to low and cover with a lid. Leave the chicken breasts to cook for approximately 10 minutes or more, until cooked through. Use tongs to remove them from the water and set aside to cool. Once cooled, cut into bite sized cubes and set aside.

    – Note: the water can be kept in the fridge or freezer and used for stock; just be sure to skim off any scum that accumulates at the surface, and run it through a sieve before cooling and storing.

    – Pour the vinegar, mustard, oil, salt and pepper into a small jar. Seal tightly and shake to combine.

    – To serve, line a large serving plate with the lettuce and line up the ingredients into sections or rows. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with the dressing before serving. Enjoy!
