Chicken with Middle Eastern spices and a tomato & feta salad

Method

  • Preheat oven to the highest degree.
  • Combine ¼ cup oil with the spice mix.
  • Then place the chicken in a large heavy-bottomed baking tray and coat well with the oil mixture. Then squeeze fresh lime juice over the top, sprinkle with a little salt and cook in the oven for about 20-25 mins until cooked through, basting now and again and adding a little stock to the tray if needed.
  • To make the salad, gently toss the cucumber, olives, parsley, tomatoes and feta with a little oil, balsamic and seasonings. 
  • Mound the salad on individual plates, top with the chicken and the cooking juices, and serve with lime wedges on the side.
