Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil, plus extra for griddling
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp roughly chopped thyme leaves
  • ¼ ciabatta loaf
  • 2 chicken breast fillets, skinless
  • 2 Little Gem lettuces, quartered
  • ½ small curly leaf lettuce, torn into large pieces
  • a grating of Parmesan, to serve
For the dressing
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 medium egg yolk
  • 75ml light olive oil
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp Thai fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp finely grated Parmesan
  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice

Step by step

Get ahead
Make the dressing a few hours in advance, chill but bring to room temperature before serving.
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7. In a bowl mix the 2 teaspoons olive oil with the crushed garlic and thyme; season. Tear the ciabatta into large croutons and toss in the garlicky oil. Spread the croutons on a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes or until golden and toasted. Turn the oven down to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4.
  2. To make the dressing, halve the garlic clove and rub a small bowl with the cut side. Add the egg yolk to the bowl and add the oil, a drop at a time, whisking to form a smooth sauce. When half the oil is incorporated add ½ teaspoon hot water and whisk well before continuing with the oil – this helps prevent it splitting. Add the Worcestershire sauce, fish sauce, grated Parmesan; season with salt, pepper and the lemon juice, to taste.
  3. Preheat a ridged griddle pan until smoking hot. Rub the chicken with a little oil and season; griddle for 2 minutes on each side, then transfer to a baking tray and put in the oven for 6-7 minutes until cooked through.
  4. Return the griddle pan to a high heat. Drizzle the Little Gem wedges with oil. Griddle the cut sides for 1 minute each; remove to a plate.
  5. Rest the chicken for 5 minutes; slice. Arrange the torn lettuce leaves on 4 plates; top with the chargrilled Little Gem wedges and chicken. Drizzle over the dressing; add the croutons and grate a little Parmesan over the top.
