Balsamic chicken & pomegranate salad



  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets (about 500g/ 1lb 2oz total weight)

  • 1 pomegranate or bag of pomegranate seeds

  • 100g baby spinach leaves

  • handful basil leaves











  1. Preheat the grill to medium and line the rack with foil. Measure 1 tbsp of the vinegar into a shallow dish with 1 tbsp olive oil and a good shake of salt and pepper. Add the chicken fillets and turn them in the dressing until they are well coated. Put the chicken in one layer on the foil-lined rack and grill for 10-12 minutes, then turn them and grill for a further 10-12 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, glossy and deep brown in colour.

  2. Spread the spinach leaves over a serving platter. Slice the cooked chicken and scatter it over the spinach leaves along with the pomegranate seeds and half the basil leaves. Shred the remaining basil and mix in a small bowl with the remaining balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp olive oil and some salt and pepper. Drizzle over the salad and serve.
