  • 1. Cut chicken in half horizontally. Place chicken in a medium bowl with thyme, oregano, marjoram, sesame seeds, salt and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Toss to coat.

  • 2. Cook chicken on a heated grill plate, or BBQ, in batches, over a medium heat for 5 minutes each side, or until cooked through. Once cooked, slice and set aside.

  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine vinegar, 1 tablespoon of the oil, garlic and sugar.

  • 4. In a separate small bowl, combine haloumi and the remaining oil. Cook the haloumi on the BBQ or grill plate for 2 minutes, turning until golden all over.

  • 5. Add haloumi to a large bowl with watermelon, olives and mint and toss gently to combine. Serve with sliced chicken on top.

  • Fresh Tip: Once watermelons are ripe, store in the fridge. Always refrigerate a cut watermelon.
