Cook Chicken:Pat chicken dry with paper towel. Sprinkle chicken with spice mix, a little olive oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Heat oil in a frypan or grill pan over medium heat. Add chicken breast and cook 8 minutes before flipping and cooking a further 10 minutes until cooked to your liking. Remove chicken from heat and set aside.
Prepare Salad Ingredients:Meanwhile, roughly tear lettuce leaves. Cut tomatoes in half and medium dice cucumber. Slice olives in half. Pick parsley leaves (discarding stems) and roughly chop. Using a sharp knife, slice the avocado in half, around the pit. Score 1cm into the flesh in a diamond pattern, being careful not to cut through the skin.
Make Vinaigrette:In a large salad bowl combine red wine vinegar, 2 Tbsp olive oil and chopped parsley (to taste). Mix well and season.
Combine Salad & Slice Chicken:Add lettuce, tomato, olives, cucumber and avocado (use a spoon to gently scoop out diced avocado flesh) to the bowl with vinaigrette and toss well to combine. Slice chicken to your liking.
You Plate It:Add fetta to salad, crumbling as you add, and divide between plates. Top with sliced chicken and any remaining parsley. Enjoy!
