  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 x 200g tub of guacamole
  • Rice to serve

For the salad:

  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • Juice of 1 lime

  1. Place the chicken skin side-up on a plate, then rub the skin with olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook the chicken over hot barbecue coals for 10-15 mins, turning once until the chicken is charred on the outside and completely cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile mix all the salad ingredients together in a bowl and season to taste. Serve the chicken on a bed of rice with the salad and guacamole served alongside.
