This grilled chicken salad is perfect for a barbecue. Any leftover chicken would make great sandwiches. 



cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only
chicken (4 to 4 ½ lbs), cut in ½
portobello mushrooms, brushed clean and stems removed
heads radicchio, halved
Watercress, to serve


Step 1

Put the garlic onto a cutting board and sprinkle it with about 1/2 teaspoon salt. Using the side of a large knife, slowly mash the garlic into a paste. Put the garlic paste into a small bowl and blend in 1/2 cup olive oil, parsley, and thyme leaves. Pour half the mixture over the chicken and season it with salt and pepper. Set the chicken aside to marinate while you prepare the other ingredients for grilling.

Step 2

Heat the grill to medium high. Drizzle half the remaining marinade into the mushrooms and half onto the cut side of the radicchios. Season both with salt and pepper and place them on the grill over indirect heat. Grill until the mushrooms and radicchio are soft, about 10 to 15 minutes; set them aside to cool while you cook the chicken

Step 3

Put the chicken on the grill and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes per side, or until cooked through and juices run clear. Set aside until cool enough to handle.

Step 4

To serve, cut the chicken into pieces, cut the mushrooms into quarters, and cut the radicchio into wedges. Gently toss everything together with some fresh watercress and an extra drizzle of olive oil.
