Tomato and marjoram salad with griddled chicken breast

Tomato and marjoram salad with griddled chicken breast


  1. Heat a ridged cast-iron griddle over a high heat until smoking hot, then lower the heat to medium. Brush the chicken breasts with one tablespoon of the olive oil and season on both sides with sea salt and pepper.
  2. Put skin-side down onto the griddle and cook for about six minutes until the skin is richly golden, then turn over and cook for another six-eight minutes until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the tomatoes across into slices and overlap them over the centre of four serving plates. Sprinkle with the sliced shallots, chopped garlic, capers, vinegar, the remaining oil, chopped marjoram and some salt and pepper.
  4. Lift the chicken breasts onto a board and cut them on the diagonal into chunky slices. Lift on top of the tomatoes, drizzle with a little more oil, scatter with the remaining leaves and serve.
