REPORT

"Not quite as 'superfood' as my

superfood salad," says Glock, "but pretty

crammed with delicious goodness all

the same. Matcha green tea powder is

a concentrated form of green tea and is

high in antioxidants. It blends really well

with the pesto."

Ingredients

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

Extra virgin olive oil

Mixed salad leaves including baby

spinach

200g tenderstem broccoli tips

200g cherry tomatoes, halved

Parmesan shavings

50g pine nuts

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Dressing

1 tbsp fresh pesto

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

½ tsp matcha green tea powder

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

Method

1. Heat a griddle until it's very hot. Slice

the chicken and brush with olive oil and

season, cook on the griddle until the

slices have lovely griddle lines and are

thoroughly cooked through.

2. Meanwhile, steam the broccoli tips

for 3-4 minutes until just tender then

immediately refresh in ice water to cool.

3. Mix the dressing by whisking together

the pesto, oil, matcha powder, lemon

zest and juice. Assemble the salad with

the salad leaves, broccoli tips and cherry

tomato halves. Toss over the dressing,

top with the warm chicken slices and

Warm chicken salad

with matcha pesto

dressing (serves 4)

scatter over the parmesan shavings and

pine nuts. Serve while still warm.

As an alternative, you can have

with sundried tomato and olive

dressing:Replace the pesto with 1

tbsp sundried tomato and black olive

tapenade, and omit the matcha.

For a veggie version: Omit the chicken,

roast 1 aubergine, 1 courgette and 2 red

peppers for 20-25 minutes in a hot oven

(200c/gas 7), serve with the matcha pesto

dressing or sundried tomato and olive

dressing as before.

Try with orange and walnut: Replace the

pine nuts with 50g walnuts, chopped

and dry fried until just starting to colour,

replace the lemon juice and zest with

orange juice and zest. Omit the matcha.

Or have with green beans and hazelnuts:

Add 100g chopped, steamed and cooled

green beans, omit the parmesan, replace

the pine nuts with 50g chopped roasted

hazelnuts and replace the dressing with

1 tbsp hazelnut oil and the zest and juice

of 1 orange. Sprinkle with a handful of

chopped hazelnuts, omit the matcha.
