Ingredients

2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
1/2 tbsp whole-grain mustard 8 mL
1/4 cup olive oil 65 mL
1/2 tbsp sesame seed oil 8 mL
1/2 tsp coriander seeds 0.4 g
1 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless 300 g
3/4 cup green/snap beans 80 g

1/4 Boston lettuce 50 g

1 tbsp fresh cilantro [optional] 2 g

Before you start

The chicken must be marinated overnight before cooking.

Method

Marinate

  1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, mustard, olive oil, and sesame oil. Crush the coriander seeds then add them to the bowl.
  2. Put the chicken breasts in a shallow dish. Pour about half of the dressing over the chicken (just enough to cover). Marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Refrigerate the remaining marinade to be used as a salad dressing.

Cook

  1. Prepare the vegetables: boil the green beans 7-8 min in a pot of salted boiling water, then immerse in cold water to stop the cooking and fix the colour. Julienne the carrots into matchstick sized pieces. Thinly slice the mushrooms lengthwise. Tear the lettuce into small pieces. Arrange the lettuce onto individual serving plates. Mix the other prepared vegetables in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Cook the chicken breasts on a medium grill for 10-12 min, or in a broiler pan in the oven, basting occasionally with some of the marinade and turning them once, until cooked through. Add salt and pepper. Slice the breasts on a bias into thin pieces.
  3. Pour the remaining unused dressing over the vegetables, season with salt and pepper to taste, them mix well. Distribute the vegetables over the lettuce on the individual serving plates. Arrange the chicken pieces on top of each plate. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.
