Method
 

For The Grilled Chicken

  • Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl & marinade for 30 minutes.
  • To cook the chicken, scrape off excess marinade & cook on a hot griddle pan. Ensure that the pan is piping hot before adding the chicken. You want to slightly burn the outside of the chicken while keeping the inside tender and juicy,

For The Turmeric Tzatziki

  • Mix all the ingredients together & taste for seasoning. 
  • Pro Tip: Do this as far in advance as possible. The ingredients should get to know each other and infuse

To Assemble

  • Toss all the salad base ingredients together, top with chicken strips & dressing on the side.
