• Cut carrot and courgette into bite-sized chunks. • Set your air fryer to 200°C. Place veggies into the air fryer basket, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and 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, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.

• Meanwhile, zest lemon to get a pinch, then slice into wedges. • Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Toast flaked almonds, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.

• Return pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook chicken thigh and garlic & herb seasoning, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 14-16 minutes.

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

Fluff up with a fork, then stir through basil pesto and set aside.
