Warm chicken & feta salad







Cook Time

65-70 Min


  • 4 skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • 175g/6oz French beans
  • assorted salad leaves
  • 200g/7oz feta cheese, cubed
  • 175g/6oz cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 50g/2oz black olives
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and sliced
  • Put the chicken breasts in a shallow dish. Crush 1 of the garlic cloves and blend with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and all of the lemon juice. Pour over the chicken, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, turning at least once.
  • Heat a frying pan until smoking hot. Drain the chicken and cook for 6–8 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  • Heat the remaining oil in a heavy frying pan. Sauté the remaining garlic with the onion wedges. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8–10 minutes.
  • Cook the French beans in a pan of lightly salted water for 5 minutes. Drain and reserve.
  • Arrange the salad leaves in a serving bowl with the feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, beans, black olives and red pepper. Put the onion mixture on top of the salad leaves, then add the chicken and serve drizzled with a little olive oil.
