Oregano Chicken on (bean and) olive salad
The marinade on the chicken is fantastic - the chicken was so flavourful, a really great balance on sharp lemon juice with a short kick of chilli (maybe a little more chilli next time for G's palate).
In true Maggie style I had to add something green - some fresh basil from the hydropantry we are minding for our neighbours (the same neighbours own the tomato plant).
Also, I think all food looks best on plain white (where possible) so pretty much all my crockery is white (on the inside/presentation side at least!)
I did cheat a bit - I used tinned potatoes. I also changed the olives from black to green, a function of what was available in the pantry. Oh, and the 'chilli' was really a spice mix that was chilli, oregano and saffron - and totally worked. Moral of the story - use what you have rather than buy more things that take up space in the fridge/pantry
