  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade, season and griddle in batches, until the chicken is cooked through. Place in a serving bowl with the courgettes, green beans and cannellini beans, and drizzle with the dressing. Serve with crusty seeded bread. This salad will keep in the fridge for 4 hours without going soggy.
