Preheat the oven to Gas mark 4, 180ºC, fan 160ºC. In a bowl, mix 1tbsp of the olive oil with the Ras El Hanout spice. Add the chicken and mix well to coat in the marinade.

In a separate bowl, mix the remaining 2tbsp of olive oil, the lemon juice and zest and the chives, and season. Whisk well until slightly thickened.

Put the chicken on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 15mins. Heat a griddle pan on the hob until very hot, then chargrill the chicken on it for 5-8mins until completely cooked and the juices run clear when a skewer is inserted. Leave to rest.

Boil a pan of water and blanch the beans for 1min. Drain and rinse under cold water, then put in a serving dish. Add the lamb's lettuce, avocado, cucumber, lettuce and spring onions. Pour over the dressing and mix well.

Warm the flatbread wraps in a dry, hot frying pan. Slice the chicken breasts, and serve with the salad and flatbread.
