August

If you don’t have room for a full tree, dwarf peach trees can be grown quite easily in pots. Once they are ripened, how about a chicken and peach Salad? 

Recipe serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 400g mini chicken fillets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ripe peaches, stoned and cut into quarters
  • 4 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon clear honey
  • 1 finely chopped red chilli
  • 110g herb salad
  • 100g crumbled feta cheese

Preparation method

  • Heat the chicken in a griddle pan with ½ tablespoon of oil and seasoning. Cook for 4-5 mins on each side or until cooked through and then leave to rest.
  • Use the griddle pan to heat the peach slices in ½ tablespoon of oil and some ground black pepper. Cook for 2 mins each side.
  • Mix together the vinegar, honey and chilli with remaining olive oil and drizzle over the salad leaves.
  • Arrange the chicken and peach slices on top and scatter with the feta.
  • Dress with the resting juices from the chicken and eat straight away.
