Smoked chicken fattoush

Chicken can really vamp up a boring recipe repertoire.


  • 2 medium-sized pita breads
  • 1 double breast smoked chicken
  • 2 large firm ripe tomatoes, deseeded and diced
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 green capsicum, finely sliced
  • 1 red onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 6-8 radishes, finely sliced
  • 2-3 cos lettuces, sliced chunkily
  • ½ cup fresh parsley leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves
  • Sumac dressing
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sumac


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  2. Brush the pita breads lightly on both sides with olive oil, cut into thin wedges and arrange in a single layer on a baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until crisp and golden. Set aside.
  3. Shred the meat from the smoked chicken and toss with the tomatoes, cucumber, green capsicum, red onion, radishes, lettuce, parsley and mint.
  4. Just before serving, toss in the Sumac Dressing and torn pieces of toasted pita bread and serve immediately.
  5. To make the dressing, in a screw-top jar shake together the olive oil, lemon juice and rind, garlic and sumac. Season with salt and pepper and toss well.

Cooks Tips

- Italian parsley is ideal to use here as the leaves are far softer than regular parsley. - Sumac is a sour red berry found pimarily in countries that boarder the Mediterranean Sea. Available dried, either whole or ground it gives an authentic taste to this salad.
