  1. Step 1

    Cook the potato in a saucepan of salted boiling water for 8 mins or until almost tender. Add the beans and cook for a further 2 mins or until tender. Drain. Set aside for 10 mins to cool. Add the dressing and spring onion. Toss to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken for 3 mins each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat a grill on high. Place the chicken on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Top with cheese. Grill for 1 min or until cheese melts.
  4. Step 4

    While the chicken is grilling, heat the extra oil in a medium frying pan on medium-high heat. Cook the cabbage and brown onion for 5 mins or until just wilted. Add vinegar and sugar and cook for 2 mins or until cabbage is tender. Season.
  5. Step 5

    Spread mustard over 4 slices of bread. Top with the chicken, cabbage mixture, rocket and remaining bread slices. Serve with the potato salad and dill pickles.
