1 large chicken (about 2kg/4lb 8oz)

2 lemons, halved

½ a small bunch thyme

olive oil, for drizzling

1 gluten free ciabatta loaf, torn into pieces

90g pack prosciutto

For the salad

200g pack green beans

small bunch parsley, roughly chopped

4 Baby Gem lettuces, separated into leaves

For the dressing

1 tbsp olive oil

juice 1 lemon

Serves - 4


Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Season the chicken inside and out, then stuff the cavity with 1 of the lemons and the thyme.

Sit in a roomy roasting tin, drizzle with olive oil and roast for 40 mins.

Remove the tin from the oven, then scatter the gluten free ciabatta pieces around the chicken and ruffle over the prosciutto. Add the lemon halves to the tin.

Roast everything together for 40 mins more until the croutons and prosciutto are crisp.

Remove from the oven, transfer the chicken to a plate and leave to cool. Remove the croutons and prosciutto, and set aside.

While the chicken is cooling, cook the green beans in a pan of boiling water for 5 mins. Drain, cool under cold water, then tip into a big bowl with the spring onions and parsley.

To make the dressing, stir in the olive oil and lemon juice with some seasoning – scrape the bottom of the tin to get all the sticky chicken juices into your dressing. Stir in any resting juices from the chicken and set aside.

When the chicken is cool enough to handle, strip the meat off the bones.

Just before serving, add the dressing, chicken, croutons, prosciutto and lettuce to the green bean mix in the bowl, toss together and scatter over a large serving platter.
