METHOD

You will need to begin this recipe the night before

1.

The night before, combine all marinade ingredients, stir well. Add the chicken breasts and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

2.

When ready to serve, assemble the salad ingredients in a large serving bowl or platter. Heat oil in a large frypan over medium heat and cook chicken breasts, turning frequently as not to let the marinade burn, for 10 mins or until cooked through. Transfer chicken to a plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 5 mins before thickly slicing and arranging onto the salad.

3.

Prepare dressing by whisking together all ingredients. Drizzle over the salad to serve.
