Of an adult's reference intake


  • 2 free-range chicken thighs , skin on, bone in
  • 1 large pinch of sweet smoked paprika
  • olive oil
  • 4 slices of higher-welfare pancetta
  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 1 Romaine, cos or soft round lettuce , (or a mixture)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 ripe tomatoes , or 125g ripe cherry tomatoes
  • 1 punnet of salad cress
  • 50 g Stilton
  • ½ a bunch of fresh chives , (15g)
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 50 ml buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4.
  2. Place the chicken thighs into a small roasting tray. Sprinkle over the paprika, and a good pinch of sea salt and black pepper, then drizzle over a little olive oil and toss to coat.
  3. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden and cooked through, laying over the pancetta for the final 10 minutes. Leave to cool slightly.
  4. Lower the eggs into a pan of vigorously simmering water and boil for 5½ minutes for soft-boiled, or to your liking, then refresh under cold water until cool enough to handle, and peel.
  5. Crumble the Stilton into a large jug. Finely chop and add the chives, along with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Squeeze in the lemon juice and add the remaining dressing ingredients. Whisk well, season to taste with salt and pepper, then pop in the fridge until needed.
  6. Remove and discard any tatty outer leaves from the lettuce, then trim and roughly chop the rest.
  7. Halve, destone and scoop the avocado flesh onto a board. Roughly chop the tomatoes and peeled eggs, then, using a large knife, bring it all into the centre of the board and start chopping and mixing it together.
  8. Shred the chicken meat, discarding the bones and skin, then add to the salad. Crumble over the crispy pancetta and continue chopping and mixing together.
  9. Transfer the salad to a nice platter, drizzle over the blue cheese dressing and snip over the cress, then serve.
