1. In a medium bowl add all the marinade ingredients and whisk to combine. Add the chicken and mix well to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum 4 hours.(overnight or 8 hours is generally preferred)

2.Set the oven to grill and preheat on 220 Celsius for 5-10 mins. Remove the chicken from the marinade onto a large greased baking tray(or a grill tray if you have one) and cook under the grill for 5-10 minutes(turn after every 3 minutes), or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has created a light crust on both sides. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it stand for 3 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, prepare the salad: In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, lettuce and onion with the dressing and oil and toss well to coat. Mix in the coriander and season the salad to taste with salt and pepper.
