Chicken, spinach and soft-boiled egg salad

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

250g baby spinach


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.

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.

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil.

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.

Preheat a chargrill pan over high heat, then cook chicken, in 2 batches, for 1 minute each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl. Add spinach and dressing to the bowl and toss to combine. Divide salad among bowls.

To gently crack egg shells, roll eggs on a counter. Peel shells, then carefully tear eggs in half and divide among salads.
