All you need is

2 small potatoes, cubed

Handful lettuce, shredded

1 red onion, diced

20g goats cheese, chopped

Handful dried cranberries

1 chicken breast, seasoned with salt, pepper and mixed herbs

To make it just

Fry the chicken breast in a little oil in a pan over a medium heat, flipping over every few minutes to avoid it being over cooked on either side.

In a microwaveable bowl place the potatoes and cover with water and allow to cook in the microwave for 3 minutes, stirring halfway through.

On a plate, place the lettuce shredded as a base for the salad, then top with the chopped red pepper and red onion and cover with the grated carrot.
