Juicy lemon & oregano chicken tenderloins with a fresh tomato millet salad and a sun-dried tomato dipping sauce.
1. Place millet in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and rinse.

2. Zest the lemon. Combine with 1 tbsp sun-dried tomato oil, 1 tsp oregano, salt and pepper. Rub all over chicken to coat. Set aside.

3. Blend sun-dried tomatoes and yoghurt together with 1/2 lemon juice using a stick mixer or blender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

4. Halve tomatoes and dice capsicum. Slice spring onions, sugar snap peas and mint leaves. Toss together with cooked millet, remaining 1/2 lemon juice and 2 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.

6. Divide millet salad between plates. Top with chicken tenderloins and serve with sun-dried tomato dipping sauce.

If you want to make this a warm dish you can sauté the vegetables.
