  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
  • cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin ground
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin

Dressing

Instructions

  • Place the chicken, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, garlic and half the oil in a bowl.  Toss to combine.
