Citrus chicken, nut & grain salad


1 large orange
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
350g pack essential Waitrose Chicken Mini Breast Fillets
100g Waitrose Love Life Quick Cook Freekeh & Quinoa
20g hazelnuts, chopped
20g walnuts, chopped
1 orange pepper, deseeded and sliced
½ x 75g pack pea shoots
1 tbsp sherry vinegar


1. Zest the orange. Remove the skin and pith, cut out the segments over a bowl to catch the juice. Squeeze the juice from the core. Place the segments plus 1 tbsp juice in a bowl and set aside. Add the zest and oil to the remaining juice and stir in the chicken.

2. Cook the freekeh and quinoa in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain and cool under cold water. Griddle or fry the chicken for 7-8 minutes or until cooked through with no pink meat.

3. Stir the reserved orange segments and juice into the grains along with the nuts, pepper and pea shoots. Top with the cooked chicken and drizzle over the vinegar.
