    Spiced chicken, mixed grain & nectarine salad

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 8 minutes
    • Total time: 18 minutes

    Serves: 2


    2 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Harissa Paste
    2 tbsp olive oil
    200g essential British Chicken Mini Breast Fillets
    ½ red onion, thinly sliced
    Finely grated zest of 1 unwaxed lemon, plus 2 tsp juice
    2 tsp clear honey
    250g pack Love Life Spelt, Quinoa, Red Rice & Wild Rice
    ½ x 100g pack watercress
    2 tbsp finely chopped mint, plus extra leaves to scatter
    1 nectarine, sliced


    1. Mix together the harissa and 1 tsp of the oil in a bowl. Add the chicken and stir well so the chicken is coated. Stir in the onion. Combine the remaining oil in a small bowl with the lemon zest and juice, honey and 1 tbsp water.

    2. Heat a dry nonstick frying pan. Add the chicken mixture, spreading it in a thin layer and fry for 6-8 minutes, turning once until thoroughly cooked and there is no pink meat and the juices run clear. Heat the pack of grains in the microwave on full power for 1-2 minutes until piping hot.

    3. Tip the grains into a large bowl and stir in the watercress and mint. Spoon onto serving plates and pile the nectarine and chicken on top. Drizzle with the dressing and serve scattered with the extra mint leaves.
