How to make it

  • Cut chicken into bite size pieces and put into bowl.
  • Chop up 2/3 of the sage and the garlic and place into mortar. Add salt white pepper and bash it hard to release all the oil in the leaves. Add olive oil and mix together. Add to bowl with chicken and set aside to marinade for approx 30min.
  • In a small saucepan melt butter. Reduce to quarter heat and roast pine nuts slowly. When brown take out and place into bowl but leave butter.
  • Take remaining sage leaves, (leave whole) and drop into hot butter. Let them frizzle up a little but don't overdo them. They need to go just a little crunchy. Take out and add to pine nuts. Add good amount of salt to the mix, stir and set aside.
  • Divvy up salad on plates, half cherry tomatoes and add. Half avocado take out stone, slice with rounded tip knife and spoon out. Arrange on plate leaving space in the center for the chicken.
  • When ready to serve heat up pan, drop in the chicken and fry golden. Spoon into center of salad.
  • Drizzle with good olive oil and caramelized balsamic. Then sprinkle pine nut / sage leave mix all over.
  • Serve with Champagne or Sauvignon Blanc.
