Ingredients

(Servings: 2)

  • 0.5 0.5 shallot
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 62.5 62.5 g mozzarella ball
  • 62.5 62.5 g cherry tomatoes
  • 0.5 0.5 tsp dried oregano
  • 2.5 2.5 g basil
  • 7.5 7.5 ml white wine vinegar
  • 16 16 g tomato paste
  • 15 15 ml mayonnaise
  • 1 1 British chicken breast fillets
  • 25 25 g baby leaf salad

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7. Add the chicken breasts to a baking tray (use tin foil to avoid mess!)
  2. It’s time to crack on with the pizza sauce. Peel and fi nely chop (or grate) the garlic. Combine the tomato paste, chopped garlic and a pinch of the dried oregano with 1 tbsp water and a pinch of salt.
  3. Drain and pat the mozzarella dry with kitchen paper. Tear the drained mozzarella into rough, bite-sized pieces, and tear the basil leaves roughly too.
  4. Spread the pizza sauce over the chicken breasts. Top with the torn mozzarella. Sprinkle over the torn basil leaves.
  5. Put the tray in the oven for 15-20 mins or until the chicken is cooked (no pink meat!) and the mozzarella is melted and golden.
  6. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the mixed salad. Chop the cherry tomatoes in half. Slice the cucumber finely, and peel and slice the shallot[s] as finely as you can. Add the chopped cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber and sliced shallot to a large bowl with the baby leaf salad and give it a gentle mix.
  7. Now for the creamy dressing. Combine the mayonnaise, white wine vinegar and remaining dried oregano with 1 tbsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper
  8. Serve the cheesy pizza-topped chicken with the mixed salad to the side. Drizzle the creamy dressing all over the salad or leave it on the side for people to serve themselves.
