Method

  1. Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Place on the microwave turntable, towards the edge, and cook on HIGH, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, turning the potatoes over halfway through cooking time.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, heat oil in a pan, add the chicken and garlic and cook for 5-6 minutes all over until brown. Add the pesto and stir through, followed by the tomatoes and spinach.
  3. Remove the potatoes from microwave carefully and leave to stand for 1 minute. Cut potatoes in half and pile the chicken mixture on top. Serve with extra salad leaves.

"This is one of my favourite summer salads. It’s a great addition to any lunch, especially a picnic. The potatoes taste amazing tossed with asparagus in the creamy lemon and avocado mix, and then sprinkled with chives and spring onions. It’s simple but delicious!
