Notes

  • Note 1 I always use free range chicken and recommend you do as well. It is only slightly more expensive. 
  • Note 2 You can use your favourite bread. Wholemeal is a good one to make it extra healthy, same for mulitgrain. I have also made this several times with white bread. There is no right or wrong for bread flavour, however, do try and get a loaf of bread that is a little more fancy than ordinary slice sandwich bread - cafe style. 
  • Note 3 Orange or red cherry tomatoes work well for this recipe. Whichever you can get your hands on will be fine! 
  • Note 4 Bocconcini or mozzarella are fine, use whichever you can most easily find! 
  • Note 5 Sometimes at this point, I drilled a little more olive oil, salt and pepper over the salad ingredients, before stirring to combine. It is not an essential step but does add an extra dimension to the flavour if you want to take this step.
