Chetna Makan's midweek special helps use up any greens that might be lurking in the fridge. This time it is broccoli, but it could be green beans, kale or sugar snap peas, so you can adapt this to whatever you have.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and add the cumin seeds. Once they start to sizzle, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until beginning to soften. Add the salad onions, garlic and chilli and cook for 2 minutes more.
Add the spices and salt, followed by the chicken. Cook on high for 5-6 minutes, then add the broccoli and cook for 5-6 minutes more, until the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat and the juices run clear.
Add the harissa paste and the cooked rice, adding 2-3 tbsp water to loosen. Mix together well and cook until the rice is piping hot.
Pouches of microwaveable rice are great shortcut ingredients. In this recipe, you could try swapping one of the pouches for wholegrain rice, if you like.
