    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 2


    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.

    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.
