2 tablespoon Za’atar spice

1 medium Cucumber
1/2 punnet Cherry tomatoes
1 Free range egg

Make breadcrumb mix & prepare chicken
Combine breadcrumb mix with salt and pepper on a plate. Lay chicken flat on the chopping board, and using a sharp knife, slice through horizontally to halve the thickness.

Lightly beat eggs into a bowl. Add chicken to egg mix and coat well. Remove chicken from egg mix one piece at a time then press into breadcrumbs. Coat well. Repeat with remaining pieces.

Cook schnitzel
Bring a fry pan to medium to high heat with a generous drizzle of olive oil. Cook schnitzel for 2 – 3 minute each side or until golden. Remove from pan and set aside.

Make dressing & salad
In a bowl, whisk together honey, HALF the lemon, a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Dice the cucumber. Remove leaves of mint. Combine in a bowl and toss with the dressing.
