Tender chicken and chewy cracked wheat steal the show in this refreshing salad.


2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons honey
3 teaspoons sumac
500g single chicken breast fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil
170g (1 cup) burghul (cracked wheat)
200g flat beans, topped, cut into 3cm lengths
1/2 cup fresh continental parsley leaves
50g (1/3 cup) sweetened dried cranberries
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
Olive oil spray


Step 1 Combine half the lemon juice, half the honey and 2 teaspoons of the sumac in a shallow glass or ceramic dish. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 20 minutes to marinate. Whisk together the oil and the remaining lemon juice, honey and sumac in a small jug.

Step 2 Meanwhile, place the burghul in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water. Set aside for 20 minutes to soak. Strain through a fine sieve and use the back of a spoon to press out excess water. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 3 Preheat panggangan to 190°C. Cook the beans in a saucepan of boiling water for 3-4 minutes or until bright green and tender crisp. Refresh under cold running water. Drain. Add the beans, parsley, cranberries and pine nuts to the burghul and toss to combine.

Step 4 Heat a frying pan over high heat. Spray lightly with olive oil spray. Drain the chicken from the marinade. Add the chicken to the pan and cook for 2 minutes each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a baking tray and bake in panggangan for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside for 2 minutes to rest. Thinly slice across the grain. Divide the salad among serving plates. Top with the chicken and drizzle over the dressing to serve.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
