Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Add the chicken breasts to a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Put the tray in the oven for an initial 10 min

2

Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes in half and rip the ciabatta into large bite-sized croutons

3

Add the chopped tomatoes and ciabatta croutons to a bowl with the dried basil, 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Mash the chopped tomatoes together with the croutons so that the juice soaks into the bread – these are your tomato croutons

Tip: Use a potato masher if you don't want messy hands!

4

Once the chicken has been in the oven for 10 min, remove the tray from the oven and surround it with tomato croutons

Tip: Cooking for 4? Use 2 trays!

Return the tray to the oven for a further 12-15 min or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!) and the juices run clear

5

Whilst the chicken is cooking, combine the Dijon mustard and cider vinegar with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil, 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar and a pinch of salt and pepper

Mix everything together – this is your dressing

6

Boil a kettle

Add the green beans to a pot, cover them with boiled water (just enough to cover them) with a pinch of salt

Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 3-4 min or until tender

Drain, then set aside

7

Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a clean board and shred it roughly apart using two forks – this technique is known as ‘pulling’
