Serves 1
to prepare and to cook


  1. Simply just chop all of your salad items so I used lettuce, peppers, onion/ spring onions, tomato, cucumber, radish and a tin of sweetcorn!
  2. Chop it all up and give it a toss around so its all mixed!
  3. I then used my air fryer for the chicken bits and bacon lardons! But if you don't have an air fryer then you can simply just fry. I personally like the lardons and bacon crispy!
  4. The croutons were also in the air fryer, make sure to give the bread a good coating of oil. Top tip stale white bread works the beat for croutons! Again if you don't have an air fryer.. frying these in oil works perfectly well!
  5. Once your bacon, chicken and croutons is all cooked wait for it too cool down and then chuck it into the salad 🥗 and give it a toss around so it's all mixed in! Then sprinkle with Sesame seeds and I like to use sweet chilli sauce on mine but you can have whatever dressing you like!
  6. Simply serve with some crusty bread and butter! Some nice herby new potatoes would also be good!
