Chicken Cobb salad with ranch dressing

Method

  • Preheat oven to 220°C fan forced (240°C normal).
  • Place the chicken in a roasting tray, skin side down, and sprinkle with a little oil, seasonings and the juice of 1 lemon. Then cook in the oven for about 10 mins until the chicken is cooked and skin is crispy. Cut the chicken into thick slices.
  • While chicken is cooking, cook the potatoes in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water. Drain, allow to cool a little and then thickly slice.
  • To make the dressing, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, parmesan, anchovies, Tabasco, Worcestershire and a squeeze of lemon juice. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • When ready to serve, mix the dressing with a little warm water to reach dressing consistency.
  • At the same time, blanch the beans in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water. Drain well.
  • Then place the tomatoes, eggs, blue cheese, potatoes, avocadoes, lettuce and beans in a large bowl and toss with dressing to taste.
  • Heat a little oil in a non-stick pan and briefly fry the prosciutto until crisp. Drain well on paper towels and then crumble.
  • To serve, mound the salad on individual plates and top with the chicken and prosciutto.
