    Serves: 2


    25g pack flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
    ½ tsp ground turmeric
    Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
    1 chicken breast fillet
    1 tsp olive oil
    400g can essential Waitrose Chick Peas, drained and rinsed

    1. Place the parsley in a small food processor and whizz until finely chopped. Transfer half the parsley to a shallow dish and stir in the turmeric, lemon zest and half the lemon juice. Cut the chicken breast in half horizontally and add to the marinade, turning to coat well.

    3. Meanwhile, add the chick peas and the garlic to the parsley in the food processor, whizz until finely chopped. Add the tahini, remaining lemon juice and 2-3 tbsp cold water and whizz again until smooth.

    4. Microwave the grains as per pack instructions then divide between 2 bowls. Slice the chicken and place on top with the cucumber and parsley houmous. Scatter over the red onion and serve.
