Instructions

1 Flatten chicken

Preheat the oven to 200/180 °C fan. Wrap the chicken breasts in cling film and place them on a chopping board. Using a rolling pin, bash the chicken breasts until halved in thickness. Unwrap.

2 Roll chicken

Top the unwrapped chicken breasts with the burger cheese and turkey bacon. Smear the Dijon over the turkey bacon. Season. Roll the chicken breasts up very tightly until they resemble cylinders. If necessary, cut the bacon and cheese to size to ensure both are included in every roll.

3 Bread

Add the corn starch, a pinch of salt and the garlic onion powder to a shallow bowl. Add the eggs to a second shallow bowl and whisk. Crush or bash the cornflakes in their bag (until they resemble breadcrumbs) and place into a third shallow bowl. First, carefully turn the chicken rolls in the starch, then in the eggs and finally in the cornflakes

4 Bake

Transfer each chicken roll, seam-side down, to an oiled baking tray. Drizzle with more oil and bake for 25-30 min until cooked through.

5 Prep dressing

Meanwhile, place the sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, pepper, dried chives and a drizzle of olive oil in a bowl and whisk - this is your dressing

6 Salad

Roughly chop the lettuce. Slice the cucumber. Finely chop the apple. Peel and grate the carrot. Toss the seeds, lettuce, carrot, apple and cucumber in the dressing. Serve the chicken over the top. 

Tips for fussy eaters

Serve with French fries and ketchup.

Pro tip

Got cornflakes and egg leftover? Bread the chicken twice before baking!
