Salads definitely do not have to be boring! This Simple Chicken & Bacon Salad is one we have been making for years and is a complete meal so you don't feel like you are missing out.
Cut the potatoes so they are all roughly the same size. Cook them in a pan of salted boiling water until the tip of a knife goes into them easily. Drain and leave to one side
Dice the chicken into bite sized pieces and season with the salt and pepper. Warm a large frying pan over a medium to high heat before adding the sunflower oil
When the oil is hot, add the chicken and move around the pan occasionally for 5 minutes
Add the diced pepper to the chicken and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and brown and the peppers have softened slightly
Remove the chicken and pepper from the pan and add the diced bacon
Once the bacon has released some of it's fat, add the drained potatoes. Let them cook until both the potatoes and bacon have become crisp
While the ingredients are cooking, you can be preparing the salad. Wash all of the vegetables and cut them however you would like. Arrange them in a large salad bowl along with the drained sweetcorn
Once the hot ingredients have cooled for 5 minutes or so, add them to the salad and toss together so everything is mixed
Feel free to add any salad ingredients you like - grated carrot, spring onions and avocado would make good additions should you wish. You can also easily increase the quantities i.e add more cucumber.
