Steps

  1. Bring a full kettle to the boil. Preheat BBQ grill or hot plate to medium-high (if using).
  2. Prep & cook salad. Place broccoli and a pinch of salt in a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Cover with a plate and leave for 5-6 minutes, until bright green and tender. Drain, rinse briefly under cold water and leave to drain well.

  8. Serve salad topped with chicken and drizzle over resting juices. Top with mint, feta and pumpkin seeds.
