Instead of baking the chicken, you can cook it in a pan, on medium-high heat, for 3-4 minutes each side (depending on thickness), or until cooked through. Then add the nut crumble to the veggies, in their final 5 minutes of cooking. Keep a close eye on the nut crumble when cooking, to prevent it from burning.


Ingredients

VEGGIES

  • 1 golden beetroot, diced 1-2cm
  • 2 carrots, cut into 1cm thick sticks
  • 2 parsnips, cut into 1cm thick sticks
  • 1 tsp oil or spray oil
