A delicious salad as noted by others. I picked up a peach at the farmers' market yesterday so I could make this with the rotisserie chicken I had left over. Thanks to BBC Good Food, I could not even remember the US name for snow peas, and wrote "mangetout" on my shopping list. I was delighted to find purple "mangetout" at Whole Foods, along with the usual green. The yellow peach, orange peach skin, and purple and green snow peas made a beautiful color combination.

Delicous and easy dish indeed. Serve with Couscous is a little confusing. Couldn't find it in the ingredients list so I left this item out. The chicken how to cook is also confusing. I fried chicken breast which had been rubbed with olive oil salt & pepper and then cooked for about 10 mins on each side. On the second side I covered it for the last ten mins and then let rest for 5 mins. For the Dressing I only added one tablespoon of olive oil instead of 6 tablespoons of sunflower oil. And as I love garlic had to add this. For those that love spice I would recommend adding a fresh chilli. This dish was so simple and sooooo yummy.

Fresh and delicious! Fabulous dressing too - I added a small clove of grated garlic just because I can't live without it! Will definitely make again.

I'm not too keen on salads with dressings - I think it makes them soggy, and too carolific - so I made this dish without the oils and soy sauce. I squeezed a lemon over and drizzled a little honey. I also just used three chicken breasts instead of stripping a whole chicken, cut into large chunks (about 4cm (1.5 inches) cubed), stir fried with a little olive oil, rock salt and pepper. When slightly cool, rip the pieces apart slightly and sprinkle through the salad.

This was a really brilliant dish, and I'll definitely make it again.

This is a great recipe for lunch on a summer's day! I poach chicken breasts and then just slice them. The couscous referred to was a separate recipe in the magazine - couscous made in the usual way with lemon juice, olive oil, mint and parsley added to it.

I fried the chicken in garlic, ginger and ground nut oil, adding some soy towards the end. It doesn't take long and is good if you're just feeding one. The recipe's a bit confusing as it doesn't state couscous in the ingredients but it does in the method so I had some with mine - I used some of the dressing to moisten the couscous.

Have made this many times over the years and it never fails to impress. Using rotisserie chicken is a good shortcut and make s the whole dish a bit a a cheat really! My kids love it too - especially the mangetout ( slice it thinly)
