  1. Place the chicken fillets on a board, cover with plastic wrap. Use the end of a rolling pin to gently beat the chicken until it is ¼ inch thick all over.
  2. Brush the griddle pan with a little of the oil, then heat until it is really hot. Add the chicken and cook for 8-10 mins turning once until charred on both sides. Set aside.
  3. Brush the griddle pan with a little of the oil, then heat until it is really hot. Add the apple slices and cook for 2-3 mins turning once until charred on both sides. Set aside.
  4. Meanwhile cook the beans in a pan of boiling water for 3-4mins or until just tender. Drain, rinse in cold water and drain.
  5. Tear the lettuce into pieces, place in salad bowl, add the tomatoes, beans, onion and half the cilantro.
  6. To make the dressing, mix the remaining cilantro with the remaining oil, lime rind and juice, honey and salt and pepper to taste.

This salad was spectacular! Beautifully delicious, really. I made just a couple changes... I used a no salt seasoning on the chicken while grilling, used one sweet onion and grilled it as well and subbed spinach for the cos. I grilled this on a panini grill and had the kids munching on green beans while everything cooked... it couldn't have been easier and more delicious. Thank you for posting such a delightful recipe. P.S. My hubby suggested adding cashews next time for some more crunch!
