Low Fat
Serves 4
2 Skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 Cucumber
1/2 Bunch Chives, Finely Snipped
1 tsp Lemon Juice
Pinch Salt and Pepper
1/2 Bunch of dill, finely chopped
1. 1. Chop the chicken into bitesized pieces. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil and 1 tsp of vinegar to a pan and set over high heat. Saute chicken for 5 minutes until cooked.

2. Trim and peel the cucumber, then slice into matchsticks 2.5 cm/ 1 inch long. Mix the cucumber with the chives in a large serving bowl.

3. For the dressing, mix together the lemon juice and the remaining vinegar. Season, then whisk the remaining olive oil.

4. Add the cooked chicken to the cucumber and chives and drizzle over the dressing. Toss together. Sprinkle over the chopped dill to garnish.

Always add chives at the last minute to hot dishes as cooking destroys the delicate flavour.
