When and why did the question of what to eat become so complicated? Enjoy this super simple, healthy yummy recipe shared with us by Carissa Mason for EatByDesign.

Serves 4

2 chicken breasts, cut in half
1/4 pumpkin cut into thin wedges
1 cup flaked almonds
100g spinach
2 tablespoon honey
2-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 avocado
Salt and pepper
2 lemons


Preheat your oven to 180C.

On a lined baking tray spread the pumpkin wedges out evenly. Coat them in olive oil and then drizzle some honey over the top.

Season the pumpkin with salt and pepper and then sprinkle the almonds over the top. Put the pumpkin in the oven and bake for about 30 mins or until the pumpkin is roasted and has caramelised with the honey.

On a separately lined baking tray, place the 4 pieces of chicken. Drizzle some olive oil over the top and season with salt and pepper.  Once the pumpkin has about 20 mins left of cooking time, place the chicken in the oven – it will typically take about 15-20 mins to cook. If you’d prefer you can pan fry it – whichever your preferred cooking method is fine.

Once the chicken and pumpkin are cooked remove them from the oven. Serve each person a piece of chicken and some pumpkin. Then add to each plate a handful of greens. Drizzle olive oil over the greens and garnish with some dill and half a lemon.
