Step 1

To make the poached herbed chicken; Add the plain yogurt, tarragon, parsley, and a pinch of sea salt to a bowl. Stir well and set aside.

Step 2

Bring the chicken stock up to a simmer in a medium-size saucepan on medium-high heat. Add the bay leaf, garlic and thyme and allow to simmer for a further 5 minutes before adding the whole chicken breast, place a lid on slightly ajar. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Drain the chicken and allow it to cool.

Step 3

Once the chicken has cooled, slice it up and add it to the herbed yogurt mixture. Toss through to coat and set aside.

Step 4

To make the avocado sauce; place all the ingredients into a small food processor, blitz until it is a smooth consistency. More sherry vinegar can be added if the sauce is too thick, set aside.

Combine in a bowl the diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, parsley, lemon juice and olive oil. Toss well.

Step 6

Start to build the bowl by adding the pre-cooked mixed grains, followed by baby spinach, a good spoonful of the herbed poached chicken, pre-blanched asparagus and the cucumber and tomato salsa. Slice the avocado into wedges and arrange over the top.

Step 7
