  • Salt and black pepper
  • Oil
  • 25g blue cheese
  • 100g natural fromage frais
  • 2 tbsp. semi-skimmed milk


  1. Season the chicken breasts on either side with salt and pepper. Slice the avocado in half, remove the stone, remove the flesh and thinly slice.

  2. Heat oil in a frying pan and add the pancetta. Fry until golden brown and then scoop out with a slotted spoon. Leave on kitchen paper to drain.

  3. Fry the chicken breasts on either side for 5-7 minutes or until completely cooked through. Slice on the diagonal into thin slices.

  4. Arrange the lettuce on a plate. Scatter with green beans, avocado, pancetta and the chicken breasts.

  5. Mash the blue cheese with the fromage frais until smooth and stir in the milk. Season with black pepper

If you don't want to use a blue cheese dressing, simply use an oil and balsamic dressing. Recipe serves 4.
