lemon chicken h)

Mix together the mayonnaise, lemon zest, juice of half a lemon, chives and mint and season. Stir in the chicken.

Separate, wash and trim the little gem leaves and use to line the edges of a deep glass salad bowl so they stand upright. Place the watercress in the bottom of the bowl and drizzle over the French dressing. Spoon the chicken on top. Serve immediately.

Serving tip 

For a party or buffet suggest guests fill the lettuce leaves with the chicken to serve.

Tip

Try using Romain leaves to replace the little gem and use rocket instead of watercress.

Replace the chicken with 4 poached salmon fillets for a new twist.
