Chicken & Blackberry salad

This vibrant chicken and blackberry salad looks beautiful and offers up a perfect balance of flavours to brighten up a weekday winter meal.

The soft chicken pairs wonderfully with the juicy blackberries and zesty lemon dressing.

Serves: 2    Prep time: 10 minutes     Cook time: 5 minutes

You’ll need

  • 2 slices walnut bread, ripped into small chunks
  • 2tsp olive oil
  • 1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • Bag of watercress
  • 50g feta
  • 100g blackberries

For the dressing

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • 2tsp lemon juice
  • 3 sprigs thyme, leaves only
  • 2tsp honey

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan. Put the bread onto an oven tray, drizzle with the oil and season well. Toast in the oven for 5 minutes until crisp. The flavour of walnut bread works well with blackberries but if you can’t find it then any bread will do.
  2. Combine all of the dressing ingredients and season.
  3. Put the chicken, watercress, feta and blackberries in a salad bowl or plate, add the croutons and drizzle with dressing. Toss well and serve.
