How to make Warm Chicken & Smoked Bacon Salad

Place the ingredients for the dressing into a small pot and simmer gently until the liquid thickens - about 5 mins - or until the liquid covers the back of a spoon. Leave to cool.

Wash & mix the salad ingredients in a bowl and leave to the side.

Heat up a pan and when hot place the knob of butter in along with the chicken pieces and diced bacon and cook gently for 6-8 mins over a gentle heat. Add the onion/red pepper/cream and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the cream has thickened.
Add salt and pepper to own choice.

Split the salad mix into 4 bowls/plates and then divide the cooked chicken equally between them. Drizzle the cooled dressing over the warm salad and dress with freshly chopped parsley and serve.
