  • white bread 100g, torn into big, chunky pieces
  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • thyme leaves 1 heaped tsp
  • rotisserie chicken ½, or 2 ready-roasted chicken breasts or legs, pulled into chunks
  • Little Gem lettuce hearts 3, halved through their bases
  • chives chopped to make 1 tbsp, to serve


  • shallot 1, or 1/4 small red onion, grated
  • full-fat natural yogurt 125g
  • malt vinegar 1 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Mix together the dressing ingredients with some salt and pepper, and leave to one side
    for the flavours to mix.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Put the bread on a baking tray, drizzle over the oil, scatter over the thyme, and add some salt and pepper. Toss together to coat evenly in the oil, then roast for 10-15 minutes, turning halfway, or until the bread is deep golden and crisp. Add the chicken chunks to the tray for 10 minutes to heat through.

  • Step 3

    Heat a griddle and add the halved Little Gems, cut-side down, until charred and beginning to wilt. Layer up the chicken with the croutons and griddled lettuce. Drizzle over the dressing, sprinkle with chives and serve.
