Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Place the chicken, tomato and onion on a baking tray. Drizzle with 1 tbsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 10 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is fully cooked.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the vinaigrette, mix 1 tbsp oil with the vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Once the chicken and vegetables are done, grill the goat's cheese for 1-2 minutes, or until the top is toasted.
  4. Toss the lettuce with the dressing and serve immediately with the grilled chicken, tomato, onion and goat's cheese.

Cook's tips

Tear the leaves off the baby gem lettuce instead of cutting the lettuce so that it will keep fresh for longer.
