  • DifficultyEasy
1 egg
1 teaspoon garlic oil
30ml extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2-3 anchovies, optional
1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes or 1/4 teaspoon pouring salt (use none if you add anchovies)
1 romaine or cos lettuce, or 2 hearts
150g cold chicken, shredded
Pepper, to taste
Generous handful (approx. 50g) natural tortilla chips

Crack the egg into a bowl, and whisk well as you add the oils, Parmesan and lemon juice. If you're not going to add an anchovy or two, whisk in the salt.

Break the crisp lettuce into bite-sized pieces and put into a salad bowl. Drop in the shredded cold chicken, mix to combine and season with pepper, to taste.

Toast the tortilla chips for a couple of minutes in an oil-less pan over a medium heat.

Give the dressing another whisk, pour it over the salad and toss to mix. Add the tortilla chips (and some anchovies, if you like) and toss again before wolfing down.
