1 Place spices on a plate. Spray chicken with oil. Press into spice mixture to evenly coat all over.
2 Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for about 4 minutes each side, or until brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside to rest.
3 Combine beans, spinach, onion and parsley in a bowl. Dress with the combined olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. Shred chicken and add to bowl along with juice and garlic. Toss to combine. Spoon among serving bowls and serve.
For a change, try this recipe with lean pork fillets. Instead of shredding, cut into thin slices before adding to bean and spinach mix.
