Lime marinated chicken Paillard with avocado salad


  • To make paillards, batten out the chicken breasts with a meat mallet to an even thickness and neaten up with a sharp knife. Put in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Whisk the oil, honey, soy and seasonings with the lime zest and juice. Add 2 tbsp chopped coriander and mix well. Then pour about half of the marinade over the chicken, toss until well coated and set aside (or refrigerate for up to 20 mins if you like.) 
  • In another bowl, gently toss the onion, tomatoes, remaining coriander and avocado with the remaining marinade. Taste for seasoning.
  • Then grill or BBQ the chicken, basting with the marinade for the first few minutes.
  • Place the chicken on individual plates and serve with a mound of the salad alongside.
