Prep time:15 minutes
Cook time:15 minutes


  • 1 skinless chicken breast fillet
  • 6 rashers shortcut bacon (diced)
  • 1 large cos lettuce
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 avocado (sliced)
  • 1 cup corn kernels (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1/3 cup Bee Cause Bush Honey
  • 3 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic (minced)


  • To make the dressing/marinade, combine the honey, wholegrain mustard, dijon mustard, olive oil, vinegar and garlic in a jar or container. We like to use our Bee Cause Bush Honey 550g reusable measuring jar, it's perfect for shaking and storing.
  • Place the lid on and shake until combined and creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken fillets into a shallow dish and pour half the marinade over the chicken. Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes, preferably 2 hours to allow the chicken to marinate. Keep the reserved untouched marinade aside to use later as the dressing.
  • Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a small frypan over medium heat and fry the bacon until crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Heat a separate pan over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Grill the chicken fillet on either side until golden, crispy and cooked through. As you flip the chicken, use a pastry brush to baste each side with the marinade.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and slice it into strips.
  • To assemble the salad, chop the cos lettuce into large pieces and place into a large serving bowl. Add the sliced tomatoes, avocado, corn, and onion, and top with the sliced chicken. Sprinkle the crispy bacon over the top.
  • Drizzle the remaining untouched dressing over the salad to serve.
