It’s the most popular thing on the cafe menu, but we can do it better at home. Note this dressing contains raw egg yolk.


  • 3 chicken breast fillets
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 rashers


To make the dressing, whiz the egg yolk, garlic, anchovy fillets, mustard, wine vinegar, white wine, salt and pepper in a blender until smooth. With the motor running, gradually add the olive oil.

Heat the grill. Brush the chicken with olive oil and grill gently for 15 minutes, turning once, or until cooked through. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and slice thickly. Grill or fry
