Let’s start with the chicken. Keep it simple with garlic, salt and pepper. Add some lemon juice to really enhance the flavours and to keep it fresh. First, fry the chicken breast in the pan to sear all the moisture inside. This way, when the meat continues to cook in the oven, it’ll stay juicy and tender.

The added flavours, like wholegrain mustard, turmeric, and lime, really enhances the dill flavour. This dill sauce compliments the lemon flavours of the chicken perfectly.

Finally, the broccoli-leek rice brings it all together. This simple, yet tasty, side dish is made with wild rice. However, this recipe will work just fine with any other rice or even couscous.
