    8 essential Frozen British Chicken Thighs, defrosted
    150g essential Frozen Petits Pois
    200g pack Waitrose 1 Free Range Air Dried Beech Smoked Bacon Lardons
    2 little gem lettuce
    200g pack radishes, trimmed and sliced

    For the dressing
    ½ x 200ml tub half fat crème fraîche
    3 tbsp grated Parmigiano Reggiano
