Chicken, spinach and soft-boiled egg salad

Ingredients (4 servings):

  • 650g chicken breasts, thickly sliced
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, leaves picked
  • 1 large clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons wholegrain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature

  1. To marinate the chicken, place in a large bowl and squeeze over the juice of half a lemon. Add 1 tablespoon oil, rosemary and garlic to the bowl, and toss to coat the chicken.
  2. To make dressing, squeeze juice from remaining lemon half into a small bowl. Add mustard, honey and remaining 60ml (¼ cup) oil. Whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil.
  4. Gently add eggs and stir until water returns to the boil. Cook for 4½ minutes for soft-boiled eggs. Drain and refresh under cold water.
  5. Preheat a chargrill pan over high heat, then cook chicken, in 2 batches, for 1 minute each side or until cooked through.
  6. Transfer to a large bowl. Add spinach and dressing to the bowl and toss to combine. Divide salad among bowls.
  7. To gently crack egg shells, roll eggs on a counter. Peel shells, then carefully tear eggs in half and divide among salads.
