Preheat oven to 200˚C/400˚F.
Line a tray with a sheet of foil, large enough to wrap around the chicken.

seal loosely in a parcel.
Oven bake for 20-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly.
In a small bowl mix the lemon juice, tahini and salt. Add a little cold water if the mixture is
too thick.
In a bowl, assemble the salad leaves, tomatoes and celery and spoon on the tahini
Slice the chicken and place on top.
