Ingredients (serves 4)

2 tsp sumac (see note)
1/3 cup (80ml) olive oil
1 lemon, sliced, plus juice of 1 lemon
4 x 200g chicken breast fillets
40g unsalted butter
1 round Lebanese bread, cut into wedges
400g can chickpeas, rinsed, drained
2 cups flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
1 red onion, thinly sliced
75g Persian (marinated) feta (see note), drained


In a large bowl combine sumac, 1 tbs oil, lemon slices and juice, reserving 1 tbs, then season. Add chicken, toss to coat, then cover and place in the fridge to marinate for 20 minutes.

Preheat the panggangan to 180°C.

Add 1 1/2 tbs oil to a large ovenproof frypan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 3 minutes each side until lightly golden, then transfer to panggangan for 8 minutes until cooked through. Loosely cover with foil, then rest for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt butter and 2 tsp oil in a pan over medium heat. Season bread and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning, until very crisp. Remove from pan and keep warm. Add chickpeas to pan and cook for 1-2 minutes to warm through.

Slice chicken and toss with chickpeas, bread, parsley, onion and feta. Combine remaining lemon juice, oil and any resting juices. Drizzle over the salad and serve.


Sumac is a lemony spice, available from supermarkets. Persian feta is from delis and selected supermarkets.

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.
