Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Spread the chunks of chicken and baguette over a shallow roasting tray. Drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil and toss to coat. Season, then put in the oven for 15 mins until the chicken is cooked through and the bread is golden and crisp.
  2. Whisk together the remaining olive oil and balsamic vinegar to make a dressing. Split the bag of leaves between two serving plates, add the beetroot, then scatter the cheese over. Toss with the warm chicken and bread, drizzle with the dressing, then serve straight away.

This was so tasty - used normal lettuce, tomato, cucumber and rocket etc instead of leaves and added a little bit of honey to the dressing. The nicest salad I have had in ages!!

Absolutely wonderful. I used bacon lardons as well in with the chicken and used 2 part baked mini baguettes broken into chunks. Chucked in a handful of cherry tomatoes and Halloumi cubes instead of the standard goats cheese. 20 minutes on 200 then dropped the lot onto a packet of crunchy salad then served onto plates - perfect.

so delicious!
i substituted feta for goat cheese and omitted baguette - instead i served it in home made sourdough pita

Quite possibly one of the nicest salads I've ever made/eaten! Occasionally change it up a little adding some avocado - makes it more of a meal.

This really is delicious! We subsituted the goats cheese for feta and added a little extra dressing. Would definitely make again. It's such an easy mid week meal.

This is a fabulous salad - really quick & easy to prepare, but nonetheless impressive. I always use more goats cheese then the recipe suggests & a really good balsamic vinegar is key - it makes the dressing really smooth.

This is a really nice salad - the goats cheese is wonderful with the beetroot and the dressing complements everything very well.
