Chicken Mignon with Grape Slaw & Pinenuts
4 Chicken Mignons from Fresh Meats Wises Road (plastic wrap removed)
1 pkt Beetroot Slaw. This salad option can be found in any supermarket in the salad section
10-20 green or red grapes, quartered
10-20 green beans
Handful toasted pine nuts
Grapeseed oil or Kewpie dressing (both optional)
Pre heat oven to 180 deg on the fan forced setting. This will brown the bacon beautifully.
Cook mignons for approx. 30-40 min or until golden and juices run clear.
Top and tail green beans and blanch in microwave for 2 min. Remove from water and allow to cool.
Slice beans on the diagonal into thirds.
Toast pine nuts on a medium low heat until golden. Allow to cool.
Combine the Beetroot Slaw, beans, grapes and pine nuts in a bowl. Feel free to lightly dress with the Grapeseed oil or Kewpie dressing.
Plate up the Mignons with the salad on the side and drizzle a small amount of the pan juices over the Mignon to make it shine.
This dish can be dressed up by serving a light jus and some spectacular summer salads like:
Prosciutto and Pear salad
Potato, bacon and chive salad
Corn and chilli salad
Bean, tomato and baby mozzarella salad
