Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Sprinkle chicken with sumac. Set aside. Place chickpeas into a large bowl; crush lightly with a fork, keeping a lot of texture. Add cucumber, tomato, mint and feta. Season with black pepper, stir to combine and set aside.
Step 2 Spray a large frying pan with oil and place over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 4–5 minutes each side, until golden brown and cooked through.
Step 3 Sprinkle chickpea salad with extra sumac or paprika and divide between serving plates. Serve with grilled chicken.
Instead of chickpeas, substitute in 2 cans of lentils and 2 cups cooked couscous. Stir in chopped green onions and parsley.
Squeeze some lemon juice over chickpea salad and chicken before serving.
