Jacqueline Alwill from Good Chef Bad Chef developed this delicious recipe using Corn Thins slices to add a crunchy texture to this simple, easy recipe.


Marinate the chicken breast for 1-2 hours (or overnight if time allows) by combining smoky paprika, garlic and extra virgin olive oil in a bowl, then coat the whole chicken breasts with the marinade.

When ready to cook, heat the oven to 180°C (fan forced), place the chicken in a baking tray, and cook for 25 - 30 minutes or until tender.

Whilst the chicken cooks, prepare the salad. Crush Corn Thins slices until they are about 5 mm size pieces, into a bowl and set aside. Combine kale, rocket, parsley, mint and onion in a large bowl and toss. Whisk ingredients for dressing in a small bowl. Drizzle salad with dressing, season and toss again, then arrange on a serving platter or divide between bowls. Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts and crushed Corn Thins slices.

Slice apple and avocado and arrange around platter or bowls. Slice cooked chicken and arrange around the salad. Add a good grind of black pepper and some grated parmesan if desired and tuck in.
