  1. Using a sharp knife, cut a few deep slashes into the thickest part of each piece of chicken. Put the chicken in a large bowl, then add the chopped oregano, chilli, paprika and oil. Turn to coat, cover with clingfilm, and marinate overnight in the fridge.
  2. Preheat a large barbecue to a medium heat. Barbecue the chicken, turning occasionally, for 30-35 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the courgettes, peppers and onions on the barbecue, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and tender. Transfer to a bowl with the salad leaves.
  4. Blitz the lemon zest and juice, garlic, feta and soured cream in a small food processor until almost smooth, then season well.
  5. Scatter the oregano leaves over the chicken and serve with the barbecued veg salad and feta cream on the side.


Serve each portion with a 40g slice of fresh wholemeal crusty bread, if you like.
