Chicken & blackberry salad

Chicken & blackberry salad


2 slices walnut bread, ripped into small chunks
2 tsp olive oil
1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
Bag of watercress
50g (2oz) feta
100g (4oz) blackberries
For the dressing:
2 tsp olive oil
Zest of ½ lemon
2 tsp lemon juice
3 sprigs thyme, leaves only
2 tsp honey


  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.
  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.
  • Note: The flavour of walnut bread works well with blackberries but if you can’t find it then any bread will do.
