Warm grilled chicken salad with oregano dressing

Method

  • To make the dressing, whisk the lemon juice with ½ cup oil, the garlic, oregano and plenty of salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Cook the chats in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water, adding the beans for the last couple of minutes. Drain well.
  • When the potatoes are half cooked, panfry or grill the chicken (skin side down first) and cover after turning over. The chicken is ready when the juices run clear when pierced with a sharp knife. Then slice the chicken and toss with half of the dressing.
  • Add the stock to the pan, mix well and heavily reduce.
  • In a separate bowl, toss the olives and tomatoes with the hot potatoes and beans, the lettuce, more dressing to taste and the reduced cooking juices.
  • To serve, mound the salad on individual plates, top with the chicken and drizzle more dressing over and around.
