Chicken, bacon & watercress baguettes
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
This hearty baguette will really hit the spot when feeding a hungry crowd for lunch
- STEP 1
Grab a large handful of the watercress, roughly snap off the large stalks, then put into a mini blender or food processor (or use a hand blender) with the crème fraîche and a good squeeze of lime juice. Whizz until the watercress is finely chopped, then season with pepper and chill until ready to assemble.
- STEP 2
Fry the bacon (in batches if necessary) on a medium heat for 8-10 mins, turning, until golden and crispy. Meanwhile, shred or slice the chicken.
- STEP 3
Split the baguettes in half lengthways and brush the insides with the juices from the bacon pan, then pile the chicken and bacon inside. Top with a handful of watercress, then finally add a good spoon of the watercress crème fraîche before you tuck in.
