INGREDIENTS

For the Salad

25g walnuts

70g quinoa

2 free range skinless chicken breasts

1 tsp olive oil

2 small Pink Lady apples, unpeeled, cored and sliced

salt and freshly ground black pepper

200g Sweet Eve strawberries

75g bag of watercress

For the Dressing

1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 heaped tsp pink peppercorns, lightly crushed in a pestle and mortar

pinch of salt

 

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C (fan) gas mark 4. Lay the walnuts on a baking tray and lightly roast in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove and leave to cool.

 

Cook the quinoa according to the pack instructions. When cooked, transfer to a sieve and rinse with cold water. Set aside to drain completely.

 

Lay the chicken breasts out on a large chopping board and, using a heavy rolling pin, bash them to flatten them out. Rub the chicken all over with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a griddle pan to hot and griddle the chicken for about 5 minutes on each side, or until it is cooked through. Set aside to rest while you prepare the salad.

 

In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together.

 

Gently turn the Pink Lady apple slices over in a little of the dressing to prevent them going brown.

 

Wash the strawberries and remove the stalks. Slice thinly.

 

Slice the chicken breast.

 

With your hands, toss the watercress together with the quinoa and a tablespoon of the dressing, then arrange on a large flat serving plate, or divide between individual plates. Scatter over the apple slices, the strawberries, the walnuts and the slices of chicken. Drizzle over the remaining dressing and serve.
