Serves 4

  • 2x 400g cans no-added-salt chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 1½ tablespoons ground cumin
  • 12 chicken tenderloins (about 500g raw weight)
  • 3 small carrots, peeled in ribbons
  • 2 cups green beans, halved lengthways
  • 4 cups baby rocket
  1. In a food processor, place chickpeas, garlic and ⅓ cup of the lemon juice. Blend until almost smooth. Gradually add ¼ cup water until dip is smooth.
  2. Sprinkle seasoning on both sides of chicken. Spray a large grill pan with oil and set over a high heat. Grill chicken, for 5-7 minutes, adding carrots for last 2 minutes, or until cooked through and carrot is tender.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a medium-sized saucepan of water to the boil. Cook beans for 1 minute or until just tender. Refresh beans in cold water then drain.
  4. In a large bowl, place carrots, beans and rocket. Add remaining lemon juice and toss lightly.
  5. Serve chicken with grilled carrot salad and chickpea dip.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
