Fry almonds in a little hot sizzling butter, transfer to a plate and sprinkle with sea salt.

Pan-fry chicken breasts in a heated non-stick frying pan over medium heat until lightly golden on both sides and just cooked through. Season with salt and transfer to a plate to cool for 5–7 minutes.

Wash and dry buttercrunch lettuce and tear leaves into bite-sized pieces. Put in a bowl with grapes.

Mix raspberry vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and ¼ of a teaspoon of salt together, adding a little black pepper. Slice chicken against the grain. Toss lettuce, grapes and chicken with dressing. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with feta and almonds. Serve immediately.
