Ingredients(18)

For the chicken

4 chicken breasts
30 ml olive oil
30 ml lemon juice
5 ml lemon zest
50 g Knorr tasty chicken and onion with Robertsons rosemary soup
1 ml Robertson’s black pepper — or to taste
100 g
quinoa
1 Knorr chicken stock pot

For the dressing

50 ml olive oil
50 ml lemon juice
1 garlic clove — finely grated
5 ml honey
1 ml Robertson’s Atlantic sea salt
1 ml Robertson’s black pepper
50 g kale
100 g feta cheese — crumbled
50 g sunflower seeds — toasted
50 g fresh mint leaves

Method:

Zesty chicken

Pat your chicken breasts dry with paper towel. Place one in a zip lock bag or between cling film, and beat gently with a rolling pin so they are even. Then repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.

In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, the contents of Knorr Tasty Chicken and Onion with Robertsons Rosemary Soup, and season with black pepper.

Add the chicken and mix well. Put aside to marinate for 30 minutes.

Heat a pan on a high heat. Once hot, add the chicken breasts, cooking for about 3 minutes on the one side, turn down the heat to low, then turn over and cook on the other side for about 2 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the pan and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.

Slice just the breasts into 1cm thick slices just before serving.

Quinoa

Rinse the quinoa thoroughly until the water runs clear. Place it in a pot and add enough stock to cook, according to package instructions.

Once cooked, put aside to cool.

Kale Salad

Whisk all the ingredients together, seasoning to taste with salt and black pepper.

Prep the kale by trimming and discarding the thick stems. Wash them thoroughly, then dry.

Put the kale into a bowl with half of the dressing and massage it in.

Put your salad together by mixing the quinoa and kale together, and placing them onto a serving platter. Top with the sliced chicken, then crumble over the feta and sunflower seeds. Finish it off by drizzling over the dressing and mint leaves.
