  • 500g pack chicken breast fillets
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Cooks' Ingredients Dukkah
  • olive oil spray (x 6 sprays)
  • 200g cherry tomatoes on the vine, divided into 4 sprigs
  • 1 essential Waitrose Cauliflower
  • 200g tub No.1 Fat Free Greek Natural Strained Yogurt
  • 1 tsp tahini
  • rocket leaves, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Slash each chicken breast 3 or 4 times, then place in a large bowl. Finely grate over the zest from 1 lemon; add the juice, half the garlic, the dukkah and seasoning. Toss well to coat.

  2. Spray a roasting tin with oil; arrange the chicken on it. Spray the top and roast for 15-20 minutes, until cooked through and the juices run clear. Add the tomatoes for the last 5 minutes of cooking.

  3. Meanwhile, remove the leaves from the cauliflower. Quarter, remove core and roughly chop florets. Pulse in a food processor until it resembles couscous. Place in a roasting tin; cook in the oven for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through. Season.

  4. Cut the other lemon into 6 wedges. Mix the yogurt, tahini, juice from 2 lemon wedges and remaining garlic. Season. Cut the chicken into thick slices, spoon over the cooking juices. Scatter with rocket. Serve with couscous, roasted tomatoes, tahini dressing and lemon wedges.
