Ingredients

  • 1 chicken leg skin on or skinless as preferred
  • 150 g silken tofu cubed
  • 4 anchovies
  • 20 g grated Parmesan
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 slice of sourdough bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Cos lettuce torn into pieces
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/355°F.
  • Bring a small pan of salted water to the boil and add the chicken leg. Simmer gently for 15-20 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, but leave the chicken to cool in the water for 10 minutes.
  • Make the dressing. Add the tofu, anchovies, Parmesan and half the garlic clove to a food processor. Squeeze in a little lemon juice and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  • Rub the other half of the garlic clove over both sides of the sourdough bread. Place directly on an oven shelf and bake until toasted and crisp – about 5-7 minutes.
  • Bring a small pan of water to the boil, add the egg and simmer for 7 minutes. Remove from the water and hold under cold running water. Peel the egg and cut in half.
  • Remove the chicken from the water. Pull the flesh (and skin, if using) from the bone and tear it into pieces. Discard the bone.
  • Take the sourdough out of the oven and cut it into small squares.
  • To assemble, put the lettuce, chicken, croutons and halved egg on a plate. Drizzle over the dressing, add pepper, and serve.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
