For the dressing

  • 25g blue cheese, such as Danish Blue or saint Agur
  • 100g low-fat fromage frais
  • 2 tbsp semi-skimmed milk

Method

  1. Tip the sunflower seeds into a large non-stick frying pan and swirl around for 1-2 minutes over a high heat until lightly toasted. Tip from the pan and set aside. Pour the olive oil into the pan and stir-fry the chicken pieces over a high heat for 4-6 minutes until golden but still moist inside.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the green beans in lightly salted water for 3-4 minutes until tender, yet still crisp. Cool under the cold tap, drain and set aside.

  3. Break up the blue cheese in a bowl. Add the fromage frais and milk and mix until smooth. Season with black pepper.

  4. Toss the vegetables together in a bowl, add the hot chicken and sunflower seeds. Pile on four plates, drizzle over the dressing and serve warm.

Lovely recipe - the blue cheese dressing complements the flavours perfectly, and doesn't overwhelm.

I wouldn't have minded if the dressing was a little stronger, but my wife doesn't generally like blue cheese and loved this recipe.

Didn't make the cheese dressing, just used a splash of olive oil, but it was delicious nevertheless.
