1

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Place the peeled & chopped pumpkin on an oven tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil and season with the salt and a pinch of pepper. Toss to coat, then spread in a single layer and roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.

2

While the pumpkin is roasting, finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Cut the chicken breast into 2cm chunks. In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, Creole spice blend, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of pepper. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Set aside.

3

Drain the sweetcorn. Finely chop the coriander. Slice the lemon into wedges. In a large bowl, combine a good squeeze of lemon juice, the Dijon mustard (see ingredients list) and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

TIP: Add as much or as little lemon juice as you like depending on your taste.

4

Heat a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the flaked almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Return the frying pan to a high heat. Add the sweetcorn and cook until lightly charred, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the mustard dressing. TIP: Cover the pan with a lid if the corn kernels are "popping out".

5

Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 5-6 minutes. While the chicken is cooking, add the roasted pumpkin, mixed salad leaves and currants (see ingredients list) to the charred corn and mustard dressing. Toss to combine.

6

Divide the roast pumpkin salad between bowls and top with the Creole chicken. Crumble over the feta and garnish with the coriander and toasted almonds.
