1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ garlic clove, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
120g chicken breast
2 thin slices of pancetta or lean bacon
4 cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon whole egg mayonnaise
1 tablespoon light sour cream
2 cups of Cos lettuce, washed and chopped
¼ cup watercress

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix half of the lemon juice with garlic and sugar. Season to taste with salt. Add chicken and marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.
