Summer chicken and raspberry salad
There is nothing like a healthy salad made with pure, fresh ingredients to make you feel good about your eating habits. This little gem takes no time to rustle up and tastes mouth-wateringly divine.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
4 chicken breasts about 150-175 g (5-6 oz) each
1 tablespoon runny honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon multicoloured or black peppercorns, coarsely crushed
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
4 tablespoons olive oil
150 g (5 oz) raspberries
2 x 120g bags mixed salad leaves of your choice
3 tablespoons fresh chopped chives or parsley to decorate, optional
WHAT TO DO:
Preheat the oven to 200oC/fan 180oC/Gas Mark 6. Line a roasting tin with foil and add the chicken breasts in a single layer then fold the edges of the foil up around the chicken to make a dish. Mix together the honey, mustard and peppercorns with 1 tablespoon of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of oil and a little salt then spread over the chicken, turning to coat both sides thinly.
Roast for about 25 minutes until golden brown and the juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a knife in the centre.
Crush half the raspberries with a fork then mix with the remaining vinegar and a little salt and pepper then whisk in the remaining oil. Sieve to discard the raspberry seeds.
Add the salad leaves to a serving bowl, toss with the dressing then sprinkle with the remaining raspberries.
Cut the hot chicken into thin slices, toss through the salad, drizzle with the juices from the foil then sprinkle with the chopped herbs if using and serve immediately.
A handful of fresh walnuts is also another optional addition if you want to add an extra dimension!
