  3. Then an hour or two later, take the meat off the bone and make the salad.
  4. If you haven't time to roast a chicken then you can just grill a few chicken breasts, slice them up and make the salad.
  5. For the Dressing:
  6. Put all the dressing ingredients in the processor, give it a quick whiz and taste for seasoning.
