Cooking Time 30 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)
1 (about 200g) single chicken breast fillet
1 egg
50g Weight Watchers rindless bacon rashers, cut crossways into thin strips
30cm baguette (French breadstick), diagonally cut into 1cm-thick slices
1 baby cos lettuce, leaves separated, washed, dried
150ml Caesar salad dressing

Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest. Thinly slice across the grain.
Meanwhile, place the egg in a small saucepan of cold water and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and gently boil, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 7 minutes. Drain and cool under cold running water. Peel and thinly slice.
Heat the frying pan over high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until crisp. Preheat grill on high. Cook the baguette slices under grill for 1 minute each side or until golden.
Arrange the chicken, egg, croutons and lettuce on a serving platter. Drizzle with the Caesar salad dressing and sprinkle with bacon. Serve immediately.
