Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 boneless chicken breasts -- skin left on
6 tbsp olive oil
675 g new potatoes
2 tbsp tarragon vinegar
4 shallots -- finely chopped
6 rashers smoked streaky bacon -- cut into thin strips
1 tsp chopped fresh tarragon
coarse sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
mixed salad leaves -- to serve

1. Heat a barbecue, grill or griddle. Season the chicken with salt and
pepper, then rub in one tablespoon of olive oil. Barbecue, grill or
griddle the chicken, skin-side down, for 8-10 minutes, then turn and cook
for another 8-10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for about 20 minutes. Drain, then peel and
halve or quarter, depending on size. Mix the remaining oil with the
vinegar and shallots, season, then pour over the potatoes. Fry the bacon
until crispy, then stir it into the potato salad with the tarragon.

3. To serve, arrange mixed salad leaves on four plates, spoon over the
warm potato and bacon salad, and top with the chicken breasts.

NOTES : Barbecuing is such a great way to cook chicken because the slight
burnt tinge works so well with the natural sweetness of the meat.

These chicken breasts have just been seasoned, rubbed with oil and
then barbecued. Chicken with bacon or tarragon - or both - is a
classic combination, and the warm potatoes in olive oil dressing
bring all the tastes together, so this dish is a real treat. If
you don’t have a barbecue, simply grill or griddle the chicken

Push a knob of butter under the skin of the chicken before cooking
to give it a tastier, more succulent finish; and why not squeeze
some lemon juice after cooking to lift the flavours.

For a creamier potato and bacon salad, stir in two to three
tablespoons of mayonnaise.
