While chicken is marinating, prepare the yoghurt sauce: combine all the Tzatziki sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

minutes each side, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.

Remove chicken from the pan; allow to rest for 5 minutes. Slice thickly and add it to the salad.
