Method:

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Heat a griddle pan to smoking hot. Slice the ciabatta lengthways and brush with olive oil on both sides. Toast in the hot pan.

Rub the chicken breast with olive oil and seasoning. Roast in the pre-heated oven until golden. Cool and slice.

For the dressing: In a food processor or with a hand blender, blend the yolk, garlic, anchovy, lemon juice and vinegar until well blended. In a thin stream, with the motor still running, pour all the oil in slowly un-til blended well with the egg mixture. It should be thick and white. Add the grated parmesan and blend until well mixed. Adjust the sea-soning to taste.

To serve, arrange the sliced chicken, ciabatta toast, cos, boiled egg, parmesan shavings and anchovy fillets on a plate. Drizzle with enough dressing and enjoy.
