  1. Preheat the grill to high. Place the chicken between 2 double layered sheets of clingfilm and bash with a rolling pin to flatten to roughly 1cm thick. Put the chicken on a baking tray, drizzle with the oil, season generously with black pepper and place directly under the grill for 6-8 mins until lightly charred and cooked through. 
  2. Spread the mayonnaise over the ciabatta and layer up with the lettuce, chicken, tomato and red onion. Serve with any remaining salad on the side.
