SUMMERY POTATO SALAD
- 600g baby potatoes, cut into halves or quarters so they are all roughly the same size
- 1 corn cob, husk and silk removed
- ½ telegraph cucumber *
- 1 capsicum
- 1 spring onion
- 25g sliced almonds
- 550g chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon chopped thyme leaves *
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves and stalks
- 1 teaspoon runny honey
- ½ teaspoon mustard (e.g. Dijon, wholegrain)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon vinegar (e.g. white wine, red wine)
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves and stalks *
- Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Preheat BBQ grill or hot plate to medium (if using).
- 1 Cook potatoes in pot of boiling water for about 10 minutes, until just tender but not soft. While potatoes cook, stand corn cob on its end on a chopping board and use a sharp knife to slice down to remove kernels. Add kernels to pot for final minute of cook time. Drain well, return to pot and set aside.
- 2 While potatoes cook, pat chicken dry with paper towels and cut into steaks. To do this, place your hand flat on top of chicken breast and use a sharp knife to slice through horizontally to make 2 thin steaks. Place all herbed chicken ingredients (except chicken) into a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
- 3 Add chicken to bowl with herb mixture and toss to coat well. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan on medium heat. Cook chicken for 2–3 minutes each side (depending on thickness), until just cooked through.
- 4 Remove and set aside, covered in foil, to rest for 5 minutes. While chicken is cooking, prepare remaining salad veggie. Slice cucumber in half lengthways and dice 1-2cm; remove core and seeds from capsicum and finely dice; finely slice spring onion.
- 5 Add all remaining summery potato salad ingredients to pot with drained potatoes and corn. Mix all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Gently toss dressing through potato salad and season to taste with salt and pepper. Slice chicken thickly.
- To serve, divide summery potato salad between plates and top with herbed chicken.
