directions
  • Preheat the broiler with the rack set in the middle of the oven. In a measuring cup whisk the oil, vinegar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Transfer 1/4 cup of the marinade to a small bowl and set the bowl aside.

  • Butterfly the chicken breasts by slicing them through the middle, then place in a shallow pan in a single layer. Pour the marinade that's left in the measuring cup over and turn to coat all sides. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.

  • To the reserved 1/4 cup of marinade add the tahini, 2 tablespoons of water and the maple syrup. Whisk till smooth.

  • Place chicken on a foil-lined sheet pan. Sprinkle with the remaining seasoning and kosher salt. Place the halloumi cubes together on one side of the pan. Brush with olive oil. Broil for 5 minutes or till the halloumi is golden brown. Carefully remove the halloumi and transfer to a bowl or plate; set aside. Continue cooking the chicken till cooked through, about 5 -10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and when cool enough to handle cut into slices.

  • Place the romaine, cucumbers and tomatoes in a large bowl and toss with some of the dressing. Divide the salad among your dinner plates, top with the chicken and halloumi and serve with the remaining dressing.

expiry
To make ahead, keep the salad, chicken, cheese and dressing stored covered and separately in the fridge for 3 - 5 days. Combine all of the components just before serving.
tips
