Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to packet instructions. Once cooked, drain thoroughly, toss with a little olive oil and leave to cool.

Shred the meat from the chicken thighs. Mix the chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, sweetcorn and lambs lettuce in a large bowl.

For the dressing

Whisk the ingredients together and season. If the mixture is too thick, loosen with a little water. Using large spoons, gently mix together all the ingredients, making sure everything is thoroughly coated.
