Ready in 45 minutes, plus marinating
8 skinless and boneless chicken thighs, visible fat removed
3 garlic cloves, lightly bashed
2 tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp dried red chilli flakes
Low-calorie cooking spray
1 red onion, finely sliced
1 lemon, juice of ½, remaining ½ cut into wedges to serve
400g can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
600g large vine tomatoes, sliced
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Put the chicken in a glass or stainless-steel bowl with the garlic, paprika and chilli flakes. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and toss until the chicken is well coated. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight.
2 For the salad, put the onion in a large bowl and add the lemon juice. Sprinkle over a pinch of salt and set aside for 10 minutes to pickle slightly.
3 Meanwhile, preheat your barbecue until the coals are white-hot, or preheat your grill to high. Cook the chicken thighs for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and the juices run clear. Set aside to rest while you assemble the salad.
4 Drain the onion, then add the beans, tomatoes, oregano and rocket. Add the balsamic and stir to combine. Season and serve with the chicken and lemon wedges for squeezing over.
