    4 x Ashfield chicken breasts

    1 lemon

    ½ orange

    ½ grapefruit

    2 tbsp Solesta olive oil

    Freshly ground salt and black pepper

    1 x bag mixed salad leaves

    1 large avocado

    150g mangetout, halved lengthways

    120g green grapes, halved

    60g walnut pieces

    3tsp olive oil


    Arrange the chicken breasts in an ovenproof dish.

    Slice ½ of the lemon, orange and grapefruit and place on top of the chicken.

    Drizzle over the olive oil and add a few twists of salt and black pepper.

    Roast for around 35mins, until the juices run clear.

    Meanwhile prepare the salad.

    Tip the leaves onto a serving platter or divide between 4 plates.

    Halve the avocado, remove the stone and then use a dessertspoon to remove the flesh.

    Slice and add to the leaves along with the mange tout and grapes.

    Place the walnuts in a dry pan over a low heat and cook until just starting to toast, taking care not to let them burn. Allow to cool.

    Remove the cooked chicken from the dish, slice and arrange on top of the salad.

    Sprinkle over the walnuts.

    To make a dressing whisk together the remaining olive oil and a good squeeze of lemon juice (from the remaining half).

    Season to taste.

    Drizzle over the salad and serve immediately.
