Chicken, Green Bean and Hazelnut Salad

Chicken, Green Bean and Hazelnut Salad

As the weather is getting warmer, at least most of the time, it’s starting to feel like it’s time to eat lighter meals.   To fill up on healthy vegetables and protein and to leave some of the carbs aside.  With this salad you can do exactly that.  Or not, if you fancy some bread on the side then go for it.   Who am I to judge?

You may notice that this is yet another meal using griddled chicken.   Yes, I  have been getting my griddle pan out rather a lot recently.   I love using simple marinades on white meat and then serving the meat with a fresh salad.   This time I was keen to use the Maille Hazelnut Oil I’d been sent.  It has a sweet roasted hazelnut flavour and I felt it would go well with a bit of lemon juice.   It did.  After marinating the chicken, I griddled it and it stayed lovely and moist but with delicious caramelized bits around the edges and where it had browned against the griddle pan.
