Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Salad

Now that we’re well and truly into the habit of roasting chickens, it’s opened up a few sections of Nigella’s recipes that we never really looked into before – uses for leftover chicken! This recipe comes from Kitchen, a book which has a whole chapter devoted to chicken recipes.

It’s incredibly easy to make too. The chicken’s already done, so you just fry up some bacon and then crumble it into a bowl with chopped lettuce, shredded chicken and avocado. Throw together a dressing of dijon mustard and rice wine vinegar, and that’s basically it.

So it’s super easy to put together, but it also tastes great. The bacon is basically used as a seasoning and works really well. American streaky bacon is best because of the way it can be crumbled into the dish.
