Method

Butterfly both chicken breasts, season with a pinch of salt and pepper. 

Stir all of the remaining ingredients for the chicken together to make a thick marinade. Coat both sides of the chicken in the marinade. Cover and marinate in the fridge for ideally 24 hours. 

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and grill for 5-6 minutes on each side or until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. 

Use a fork to combine all of the ingredients for the creamy avocado dressing until it’s smooth. Place in a serving bowl and set aside. 

Place all of the ingredients for the salad in a large bowl, crumble the goat’s cheese over the top and dress with salt, pepper, lemon juice, and avocado oil. 

Remove the from the grill pan and allow to rest for a few minutes. Serve with salad and creamy avocado dressing.
