Garlic-Herb Chicken & Pumpkin Freekeh

with Tahini & Yoghurt Sauce

Add tonnes of flavour to your dinner with our garlic and herb seasoning! Here we've used it to coat succulent chicken strips, served with roasted veggies and freekeh. It's definitely a meal to remember!

We’ve replaced the couscous in this recipe with freekeh due to local ingredient availability. It’ll be just as delicious, just follow your recipe card!

Instructions

• In a large saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Toast freekeh, stirring occasionally, until golden, 1-2 minutes. • Half-fill the saucepan with water, then add a good pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, until tender, 30-35 minutes. • Drain, rinse and return to the pan over medium heat.

TIP: The freekeh is cooked when it has softened but still retains some bite.

• Cut onion (see ingredients), beetroot and carrot into small chunks. Roughly chop baby leaves. • Set your air fryer to 200°C. Place onion, beetroot, carrot and peeled pumpkin pieces into the air fryer basket, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes. • Shake the basket, then cook until tender, a further 5-10 minutes.

TIP: No air fryer? Preheat oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Place veggies on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, spread out evenly, then roast until tender, 25-30 minutes.

• Cut chicken thigh into 2cm strips. In a medium bowl, combine garlic & herb seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil. Add chicken, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. • Return pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When oil is hot, cook chicken, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes.

TIP: Chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside.
