Place snow peas into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 1 minute or until just tender. Drain and rinse under cold water.

Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Add eggs and cook for 7 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Peel cooled eggs and cut in half. Arrange watercress, snow peas, beetroot and chicken in shallow serving bowls.

Whisk sour cream, vinegar, oil, lemon juice and maple syrup in a jug. Season with salt and white pepper. Drizzle dressing over salad and top with eggs. Serve.
