    Grilled chicken & chicory with figs and spicy honey

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 2


    2 Waitrose Duchy Organic Free Range Chicken Breast Fillets
    1 tbsp grapeseed oil
    140g pack red chicory, halved
    30g clear honey
    1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    Pinch chilli flakes
    60g Essential 50% Reduced Fat Greek Salad Cheese, crumbled
    2 tbsp fat-free Greek yogurt
    4 figs, quartered
    Flat leaf parsley leaves, to serve (optional)


    1. Preheat the grill to high with a grill pan on the top rack. Coat the chicken in 1/2 tbsp oil and season. Reserve a few chicory leaves for garnish, then brush the chicory halves with 1/2 tbsp oil.

    2. In a small bowl, mix together the honey, vinegar and chilli flakes until well combined. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the salad cheese and yogurt until well combined, then use a fork or balloon whisk to beat until light and fluffy.

    3. Grill the chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until thoroughly cooked, the juices run clear and there is no pink meat. Add the chicory to the grill for the last 4 minutes. Serve both immediately with a spoonful of whipped cheese, the fig pieces, reserved chicory leaves, some parsley (if using) and a drizzle of spicy honey.

    Cook’s tip Whipped feta or reduced fat salad cheese is so easy to prepare and really versatile. You can use it as a spread on sandwiches, bruschetta or wraps, as a dip for crudités or nibbles, as a condiment to accompany lots of savoury, and even some sweet dishes.
