This light and tasty salad is served with chickpeas, piquillo peppers and lemony dressing.
Place a griddle pan over a high heat. Put the chicken on a plate and drizzle with a little olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss well to coat. Place in the hot griddle pan, skin side down, and cook for 4–5 minutes, until the skin is dark golden, crisp and marked with griddle lines. Lower the heat and turn the chicken over. Cook for a further 6–8 minutes, turning now and again, until the chicken is cooked through. Remove and set aside to rest for a few minutes.
To make the dressing put the mustard into a bowl, add the olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Mix well, then taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
Place the peppers strips, chickpeas and caper berries in a salad bowl and mix well. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
Mix the basil into the chickpea salad, then pour in three-quarters of the dressing. Slice the chicken into chunky slices and place on top of the salad. Toss lightly, drizzle over the remaining dressing and serve.
