Rub mix­ture all over chicken, sea­son. 2. Cook chicken on a heated oiled grill plate (or pan or bar­be­cue) for 10 min­utes or un­til chicken is browned on both sides and cooked through. If you like, line the grill plate with bak­ing pa­per be­fore char­grilling the chicken. This will pre­vent the mari­nade from burn­ing be­fore the chicken is cooked through. 3. Mean­while, make fat­toush. 4. Slice chicken thickly, driz­zle with re­main­ing oil. Serve with fat­toush. FAT­TOUSH Drain and re­serve oil from feta into a jug or small bowl – you will need ¼ cup.
