  • 1 x 400g can butter beans, rinsed, drained

    Place the chicken in a glass dish. Combine cinnamon and half the orange juice, honey and oil in a jug. Pour over chicken and turn to coat. Cover and place in the fridge for 15 minutes to marinate.

    Meanwhile, whisk the vinegar and the remaining orange juice, honey and oil in a jug. Taste and season with pepper.

  • Step 5

    Place the asparagus, green beans, butter beans, orange and parsley in a bowl and toss to combine. Divide salad among serving plates. Top with chicken and drizzle over the dressing to serve.
