We've got a great recipe here for cooking a whole chicken with lemon and garlic if you don't want to use chicken breasts.

Method

  1. Place the chicken breasts between sheets of cling film and, using a mallet or rolling pin, beat lightly until about 1.5cm thick. Remove the cling film and season well.
  2. Mix together the lemon zest, chopped rosemary and garlic and spread over the chicken breasts.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium and line the grill pan with foil. Beat the egg white on a plate with a little salt and pepper until frothy. Dip the chicken in the egg white and place on the grill pan. Grill for 10-12 minutes, turning once until browned and crisp.
  4. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in lightly salted water for 10 minutes, adding the green beans for the final 3 minutes, then drain. Toss the potatoes, green beans and cherry tomatoes with the vinaigrette and season.
  5. Divide the potato salad between four plates then serve with the chicken and lemon wedges to squeeze over.
