Ingredients
  • 80g butter, softened

  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated parmesan
  • 4 (200g each) chicken breast fillets, skin on
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 100g green beans, trimmed, halved
  • 1 small butter lettuce, leaves separated and torn
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, halved lengthways, sliced
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced
  • White balsamic dressing
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

Reduce oven temperature to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Baste chicken with pan juices. Bake for a further 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Place beans in a microwave-safe bowl. Add 1 tablespoon cold water. Cover. Microwave on high (100%) for 1 minute or until tender. Drain. Refresh under cold water. Drain.
  4. Make white balsamic dressing: Place oil, vinegar and chives in a screw-top jar. Season with salt and pepper. Secure lid. Shake to combine.
