Chicken is great in salads and this simple warm chicken salad recipe doesn’t even require any cooking. Use leftover roast chicken to scatter on top.


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Small bunch of radishes
  • 200ml jar mayonnaise
  • Good handful chopped fresh tarragon, plus extra sprigs to garnish
  • Lime juice
  • 1 ready-roasted chicken


  1. Halve, stone, peel and slice the avocados. Top and tail the radishes, then slice them in half. Divide the avocado and radishes between 4 plates.
  2. Mix the mayonnaise and tarragon with enough lime juice to give a runny consistency.
  3. Cut up the chicken and divide the pieces between the plates. Dollop a big spoonful of tarragon mayonnaise onto each plate and garnish with a few tarragon sprigs.
