Crouton, a French word meaning “little crust”, is a small cube of toasted or fried bread usually used to garnish soups or salads. They are a fantastic way to use up yesterday’s bread. For a twist, add some garlic or herbs when making your croutons. You need to purchase a large barbecued chicken weighing approximately 900g to get the amount of chopped meat required for this recipe.
