Combine the marinade ingredients with 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium bowl.

Add the chicken, coat well and marinade for at least 20 mins.

Make the salad by halving the cherry tomatoes, adding the chopped herbs and mixing well in a bowl.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add the chicken in batches, cooking for 3 - 4 mins on each side or until cooked through. Ensure the chicken is cooked by piercing the thickest part of the chicken and making sure the juices run clear.
