Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl with 1 tbsp water. Add 1 tbsp of the dressing to the chicken breasts and toss well to coat. Heat the oil in a small non-stick frying pan with a lid and cook the chicken for about 12 mins, covered, turning over halfway until cooked all the way through.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 7 mins, add the beans and boil for 5 mins more or until both are just tender, then drain.

  • STEP 3

    Put the chicken on a plate to rest while you toss the beans, potatoes and remaining salad ingredients together in a large bowl with half the dressing. Slice the chicken, arrange on the salad, then add any juices to the remaining dressing and spoon on top.

RECIPE TIPS
VEGGIE VERSION
