Chicken Avocado Caprese Salad May 29, 2019 13:54

Ingredients

Marinade/Dressing:

Salad:

  • 4 chicken thigh fillets, skin removed (no bone)*
  • 5 cups Romaine, (or cos) lettuce leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 cup mini mozzarella / bocconcini cheese balls
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to season

Instructions

  1. Whisk marinade ingredients together to combine. Place chicken into a shallow dish; pour 4 tablespoons of the dressing / marinade onto the chicken and stir around to evenly coat chicken. Reserve the untouched marinade to use as a dressing.
  2. Heat about one teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat and grill or sear chicken fillets on each side until golden, crispy and cooked through. Once chicken is cooked, set aside and allow to rest.
  3. Slice chicken into strips and prepare salad with lettuce, avocado slices, tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and chicken. Top with basil strips; drizzle with the remaining dressing; season with salt and pepper; serve.

Notes *Boneless, skinless chicken breasts can be used instead of thighs

Telegraph Hill Smokey Ribs 

Ingredients

  • 700g Pork ribs
  • 100mls Telegraph Hill Manuka Smoke infused Balsamic Drizzle
  • 100mls Telegraph Hill Traditional Olives brine (eat the olives while cooking this recipe)

Carefully Slice the pork ribs along the side of every second bone, so that you are left with a nice wedge of meat on each side of the bone you will cook.  Discard the bare bones.

Combine the ribs, olive brine and Manuka Smoke infused Balsamic Drizzle in a heavy pot and gently slow simmer until tender.  Place ribs on an oven tray, reduce remaining sauce until sticky and brush onto ribs.  Finish for 5 minutes under grill for super sticky ribs.  Watch they don't burn!

Garnish with sesame seeds.

A dollop of Olive Tapenade

A good glug of Manuka Smoke infused Balsamic Drizzle

Mix these two with a spoon using ratios to your desired consistency, I use about equal amounts of each, and drizzle this onto your steak.   I've always loved recipes like this, using the 'precise' measurements of a dollop and a glug!  

Enjoy your creative time in the kitchen!
