Chickpea and chicken salad
Salads don't have to just be a bowl of lettuce. This chickpea salad contains chicken and cherry tomatoes for a lovely filling lunch.

2 tsp olive oil

1 chicken fillet, finely cut

1 onion, peeled

1 red chillies, deseeded

2 tsp lemon juice

Pinch salt

400g tinned chickpeas, drained, or around 4 large handfuls of soaked and cooked chickpeas

2 handfuls cherry tomatoes

1 handful fresh basil, finely ripped

Heat 1 tsp oil in a frying pan and gently cook your chicken for 8 minutes. Remove and set aside.

While the chicken is cooking, combine your onion, chillies, lemon juice and the rest of the oil in a bowl. Season with the salt.

Pour the chickpeas into the pan to heat them up. Return the chicken to the pan and add the onion mix. Cook for a further minute.

Pour into a serving bowl and add the cherry tomatoes. Season with sweet chilli sauce, if using.

Garnish with the basil.
