  1. Lay the chicken in a shallow dish. Whisk up the chilli paste or harissa, oil, lemon juice and a little salt in a small bowl. Pour over the chicken and rub in to coat each piece.

  2. To make the dressing, halve, seed and dice the tomatoes. Mix in a bowl with the chilli paste, lemon juice, oil and a little salt. Set aside.

  3. Heat a griddle pan or start the barbecue, then cook the chicken for 6-8 minutes on each side until cooked through. Remove and wrap in foil to keep it warm.

  4. Separate the lettuces and spread the leaves over a serving platter. Slice the cucumber and radishes and scatter over the lettuce.

  5. Cut the chicken into strips and toss with half the dressing in a large bowl. Tip on to the salad and scatter with the pine nuts and mint leaves. Drizzle over the remaining dressing and serve warm.

need to increase the harissa paste and dressing for extra zing. But very very good - esp if barbecued!
