Then turn each one over and cook again for a further 2 minutes, Repeat cooking each side for a final two minutes then turn the heat off and rest for 2 minutes.
Whilst your chicken is cooking you can prepare your salad, put all the ingredients to a large bowl, and dress with the 2x tbsp. of oil , zest and juice of the remaining lemon, season with salt and pepper tossing to incorporate all the flavours. To serve slice your chicken and serve with some salad and a nice spoonful of tzatziki.
