Instructions

1

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Pop them onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle over the dried oregano, then season with salt and pepper.

Toss to coat, then spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.

2

Meanwhile, trim the courgette and slice into 1cm thick rounds.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat. When hot, add the courgette and cook until charred, 3-4 mins. Season with salt and pepper. Turn only every couple of mins - this will result in the courgette picking up

Once cooked, transfer the courgette to a bowl and cover to keep warm.

Pop the pan back on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the chicken to the pan. Fry until golden brown on the outside and cooked through, 8-10 mins. Set aside. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

3

Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.

Pop the sliced pepper and baby plum tomatoes onto another large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.

Roast on the middle shelf until soft and slightly charred, 15-18 mins.

4

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, pesto, sugar and olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for both amounts).

Season with salt and pepper. This is your pesto dressing.

5

Once the veg has roasted, add everything to the bowl of pesto dressing and toss to coat.

Just before serving, add the baby leaves, chicken and charred courgette to the bowl, then toss to combine. TIP: Don't add the leaves too early or they'll go soggy.

6

Share the chicken salad between your bowls.

Crumble over the Greek style salad cheese to finish.

Enjoy!

Step 2 MOD: If you’ve chosen to add chicken, add it to the pan after charring the courgette. Fry until golden and cooked through, 8-10 mins. Set aside, the chicken will be added to the salad with the courgette in step 5. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. It’s cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
