  1. Warm 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Season both sides of chicken with Cajun seasoning and place in hot oil. Stir in crushed garlic. Cook chicken 5 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. Remove chicken from frypan, drain on paper towels, cool slightly and dice; discard oil and garlic.
  2. In a small bowl, mix remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, gently toss the dressing with the mixed salad greens, rocket, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes and olives. Top with diced chicken to serve.
